Trading through a market event

Published on 6 December 2019

How can traders manage risk and opportunity during a market event? While portfolio managers will take positions prior to the event itself, traders may either seek opportunities – such as misalignments in pricing – or manage risks that are created, for example if the market moves in an unexpected direction. Trading across asset classes can uncover opportunities, but having access to the right data at the right time is key. James Athey of Aberdeen Standard Investments, Sean George of Strukturinvest Fondkommission and Mattias Remnefjord of FIS discuss the risks and possibilities that traders can uncover in part 2 of this episode.
