MarketsWiki Education, New York 2015

"I want you to think differently, all the time, when thinking about things, and look for parallels, because parallels help you understand things. We often speak in stories because people understand stories."

Chris Ferreri, former head of e-commerce for ICAP and founder of Eight Point Strategies, is a master at taking complicated issues and breaking them down into pieces that can be readily understood. When at ICAP, Ferreri was tasked with explaining market structure to legislators and regulators as they crafted the rules related to the Dodd-Frank Act. In this MarketsWiki Education presentation, he explains the different modes of execution in fixed income markets in terms we can all understand - Zillow, Craigslist, Kelley Blue Book, and the used car salesman down the street.
