Anthony Malakian, US editor of Waters, records a weekly podcast touching on the biggest stories in financial technology.
Earlier this week, Waters’ sibling publication, Inside Data Management, hosted its annual North American Financial Information Summit (NAFIS). During the event, Stephen Morse, former head of global financial data partnerships at Twitter, spoke to the audience about how traders are mining data created through social media—and, specifically, through Twitter—to find a trading edge. After Anthony gives some information on how to vote in this year’s Waters Rankings, Stephen’s presentation will be played in full. See below for timestamps:
