Sell-Side Technology deputy editor Dan DeFrancesco and WatersTechnology US editor Anthony Malakian record a weekly podcast touching on the biggest stories in financial technology.
Dan and Anthony open things open chatting about the problem with debating high-frequency trading and the defenders of both sides of the argument (:49). They then discuss each of their August features, with Dan starting things off recapping his discussion with RBC's head of technology and operations, Bruce Ross (7:00). That's followed by a look at Anthony's story on the growing trend of blending ETFs and active mutual funds (12:20). Inspired by a recent Twitter hashtag, the guys share their seven favorite movies (18:11). To wrap things up, the two discuss the Ryan Lochte saga (26:35) and debate whether Michael Phelps, Usain Bolt and Katie Ledecky did or did not take steroids (29:35).
