Field Programmable Gate Arrays in Finance
Tuesday October 14, 2014
As part of a Morgan Stanley’s recruitment effort, I was invited to give a talk about Field Programmable Gate Arrays in Finance at my alma mater – Imperial College London.
Since this was mainly targeted at students, this presentation focused on a myriad of applications of FPGAs in this industry. These applications ranged from simple use-cases like kill-switches to all the way to complete Trading-Systems-on-a-Chip.
This talk also explained why, everything being equal, traders prefer to go to the fastest exchange.
