Acuiti today publishes the European Attitudes to Trading in APAC report, which was commissioned by Trading Technologies ahead of its inaugural TT® Connect: Asia Insight event taking place tomorrow in London.
This report is based on a survey of senior executives at 53 European based proprietary trading firms and hedge funds.
The survey finds that European proprietary trading firms and hedge funds are set to expand trading across the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region as opportunities and volumes grow. However, there are challenges unique to markets in the region that must be overcome in order to realise the rewards on offer. These include finding the right local partners, understanding local rules, and gaining access to regional derivatives markets via preferred clearing firm.
Other key findings of the report include:
- Japan is the most commonly traded market in the region, followed by Australia and Hong Kong
- Singapore was the easiest market to connect to, China the hardest
- Firms trading Indian onshore markets reported the highest profitability from trading in APAC
- Equity futures are seen as the asset class with the most potential in APAC over the next three years
