FCA on Algorithmic Trading

Posted in: Blog

The Financial Conduct Authority has published a report summarising the key areas of algorithmic trading, including areas of good and bad practice it has observed. 

Automated technology has “significant benefits” to investors, such as increased execution and reduced costs, however it can also amplify some risks,” the FCA said. 

“It is therefore essential that key oversight functions, including compliance and risk management, keep pace with technological advancements.”

Key areas of focus within algorithmic trading compliance in wholesale markets include the development and testing process, risk controls, governance oversight and market conduct, the FCA explained.
