NEW YORK, Aug. 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- FXDD, a global leader in online Forex trading, was recently represented by James Trott, former Chief Dealer of the Bank of England, at the Opal Financial Group Conference where he discussed investment opportunities in emerging markets, the perils of foreign direct investments, risk and exposure of foreign markets, market volatility and the importance of asset class diversification.
"It is the trader who produces alpha, not the strategy," Mr. Trott stated. "And as any savvy trader knows, risk and returns go hand in hand. By just looking at the returns and not the risk, investors are only getting half the picture. The key component of how those returns were generated is more important that the returns themselves," Mr. Trott said.
FXDD was a Premium Sponsor at the Opal Financial Group Conference for Family Offices and Private Wealth Management, a premium educational and networking event for financial professionals and investors, held in Newport, RI from July 23 to July 25, 2012.
In addition, FXDD demonstrated several of the latest Forex trading technology and currency trading platforms designed to help asset managers manage risk, provide additional liquidity and leverage, limit exposure to market volatility, increase diversification, raise capital and attract new investors.
