The Changing Scenario Of Retail Trading In European Union

The panel discussion held at Finance Magnates London Summit 2023 was a changing dynamic of how retail trading would advance in the ever-evolving world scenario.

The discussion was an amalgamation of ideas and innovations of great minds of some well-known industry personalities. The discussion was held by Rafah Hanna, the Director of Rafah Hanna.  Some of the noteworthy personalities were Richard Barden, the Market Data Sales Director at CBOE; Mazhar Saleem, the Sales Director for Enterprise Data & Platform at LSEG; Joe Craven, the Global Head of Enterprise Solutions at TipRanks.

The Central Theme

The main discussion was held on the retail trading -which is the sales of goods for personal or household consumption in EU. The changing dynamics in Europe and also the world seeks both diversification and consolidation, which was the main talk of the discussion.

An anticipated growth of nearly 40 percent was observed by Hanna in the next five years. This was the discovery of new markets, opportunities for the traders in the coming years. With the growth in trade and market, the clients today have become more aware about the changing dynamics it brings along. They seek diversity and uniqueness in the products, as observed by Saleem.

Another topic that was included in the discussion was about the growing indulgence of larger players in the white-label services. These services help in the rebranding of the original product by another company, thus helping in the marketing of the product. By doing so, the large players give the small organizations a way or passage to enter the markets.

Craven, shed light on the observations he had noted.
