Whilst electronic trading was the direction of travel for the London Market, it such a shame that the technology was not embraced more fully, much earlier, and that such a tragic event as this pandemic is the wake-up call for market modernisation and accelerated adoption.

But modernisation is still missing common data standards and full integration capability.  In my opinion, key elements to truly make this work and accelerate adoption. After all, why would someone want to log in to different portals to key in the same data over and over again!?

Crucial investment should be directed to technology investment now, but let the technologists drive this part of the initiative and not run this by committee.
