Mr. Hirander Misra
Mr. Hirander is the Chairman of trading technology provider Forum Trading Solutionsand Managing Director of Misra Ventures, a consultancy providing specialist senior level advisory services helping firms deliver change in market structure, trading andregulatory compliance.Previously he was a Co-Founder and the Chief Operating Officer of Chi-X Europe Ltd,instrumental in taking the company from concept to successful launch. Established in2007 by Nomura Holdings subsidiary Instinet, Chi-X Europe was eventually owned by aconsortium of major global financial institutions including BNP Paribas, Citadel,Citigroup, Credit Suisse, Fortis, GETCO Europe Ltd, Goldman Sachs, Merrill Lynch,Morgan Stanley, Optiver, Société Générale and UBS. When it launched, Chi-X Europewas the first multilateral trading facility that launched in anticipation of the EuropeanUnion's November 2007 Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID), whichpaved the way for the introduction of alternative trading venues in Europe. At the timeof Mr. Hirander’s departure in February 2010, Chi-X Europe was the second largestequities trading venue in Europe, just behind the LSE Group and was subsequentlysold to BATS Global Markets in November 2011 for $365M.Earlier in his career, Mr. Hirander held a variety of roles in the electronic trading spaceduring his 8 year tenure with Instinet, most notably SVP Head of Product Developmentand Head of the European Exchange Linkages Group, delivering Instinet, Europe'sdirect exchange connectivity product suite, and launching the first European SmartOrder Routing system.

It’s not the volumeof orders that’s the problem, it’s about having the right level of monitoring and controlsin the core system. Any well-designed modern system with the right checks in placeshould be able to handle high volumes and unexpected market events.” The India flashcrash drew parallels to the 2010 US flash crash that saw the Dow Jones IndustrialAverage to plunge by 9% within five minutes, due to an unconstrained algo tradedeployed by a mutual fund, only to recover the majority of losses 20 minutes later.High-Frequency Trading Leaders Forum 2013, "Strategic and Tactical Insights for Investors, Speed Traders, Brokers and Exchanges" will bring insights for investors andspeed traders who need to protect and refine their competitive advantage in a worlddominated by algorithmic and high-frequency trading.
