FIA’s Boca 2019 conference brought together leaders from the global futures, options and cleared derivatives industry for a week of insight and networking. Here, OpenFin CEO Mazy Dar was interviewed by Jill Malandrino of Nasdaq Trade Talks. OpenFin is the financial industry’s operating system, enabling rapid and secure deployment of technology that transforms the trader desktop.

Check out the interview, and see below for a partial transcript.

Jill Malandrino: A key thing that we’ve been hearing about throughout the conference is the ecosystem and all of the different platforms that traders have accessible to them. Why is interoperability really crucial for today’s trader?

Mazy Dar: If you think about all the folks represented at this conference, they each have applications that are used essentially by the same end user. Those users are using analytics, pricing, order management, execution management, etc. In today’s world, that end user is the integration layer that is connecting all the applications. They’re looking at what’s happening on an RFQ system and typing that information into another system in order to try to make a trading decision. What you need is to connect the workflow across those applications to make the entire workflow much more efficient than it is today.
