IntelligentHQ.com in partnership with Groupe INSEEC London presents: Wayne Walker – Specialist in Capital Markets Education – Video Interview

Trading and special Forex Trading has experienced significant changes in the past year. There has also been more innovation deployed in product offerings, as  alternative multi-dealer trading marketplaces have continued to grow. These have been launched by a variety of organizations, many of which have not been associated with the FX market in the past. For this level of momentum to continue, innovation it seems, is dependent on new, well educated blood entering the industry.

In this interview Market Specialist, Wayne Walker, talks about the role of the company GCMS plays in education in Capital Markets, working with Universities and Business Schools, the impact of social and mobile trading and challenges for Financial Services.
