Stock Exchange outages:

The challenges that the trading and broader investment teams have overcome have been incredible. If you’d have asked me back in February can we operate 100% WFH on any day of the week, let alone a busy or volatile day, I would have had said it’s not possible.

Head of Trading Champion 2020 - Simon Steward, Head European Equity Trading, Capital International
2020 has been unprecedented for so many reasons, over a 20 year trading career I thought I had seen it all but this year has once again surprised me. I am so proud of the way that my desk has adapted to the current situation in what has been a challenging and frankly scary time for everyone.
Head of Trading Champion 2020 - Hans Lindh, Former Head of Execution, Swedbank Robur
The desk has coped extremely well with the situation and when the remote connectivity was solved it has been a success in a way. Some traders are happy and even more keen to work from home than commute to the office day in and day out.
Head of Trading Champion 2020 - Richard Worrell, Head of EMEA Equity Trading, Janus Henderson Investors
This has obviously been an unprecedented year but arguably you only really learn about the team and yourself in challenging times. To that end, I’m proud of how we handled such extreme volumes and volatility and continued to produce strong outcomes for our clients
It’s all about communication and personal interaction. Technology cannot be a fully equivalent alternative. The whole staff of the European trading desk (all asset classes) has been in the office all the time, split into 3 groups on 3 different floors.
2020 was a challenging year but we could be proud of ourselves as we were since March working from home and we were coping an increase of our flows with no disruption in the quality of the service provided to our PMs
What a year ! It’s easy to forget 2019 but running a global team where the Hong Kong based traders had already been dealing with split site working (from the office and home) we learned a lot about what worked and what didn’t through this period leading us to begin upgrading our home solution
