London, UK – 9 October 2007 – Leading industry experts will debate the changing trading landscape and the adoption of algorithmic trading in the Asia-Pacific markets at the third annual Futures Industry Association (FIA) Asia Derivatives Conference in Taiwan, from 10 to 12 October.

The conference will host an algorithmic trading panel to examine the challenges and approaches to establishing the emerging technology infrastructure required to support electronic trading in the region’s markets.

Panel participant Damian Bierman, head of Asia operations, Portware, comments: “The rapid adoption of algorithmic trading across the Asia-Pacific region is having a major impact on local markets. Issues over its potential impact and the ability to establish direct connections from trading systems to Asian markets are coming to the fore. This conference comes at a crucial time, allowing market participants the opportunity to gain valuable insight on the best use of technology to support their evolving algorithmic strategies.”

Also speaking at the event is keynote speaker, Dr Shyan-Yuan Lee, commissioner of Taiwan’s Financial Supervisory Commission (FSC).

The conference is expected to attract more than 250 delegates including the region’s leading buy-side and sell-side firms, exchange representatives, regulators and solution providers.
