NEW YORK, NY – September 26, 2013 – The Robert Zicklin Center for Corporate Integrity at Baruch College’s Zicklin School of Business is hosting “Selling Split Seconds,” a panel discussion on October 8.
As the integrity of the securities markets depends on all investors having easy and equal access to information that might influence the value of a stock, the SEC and other government agencies have worked to ensure a fair playing field. However, certain groups have released data to favored clients moments before making it available more generally, and in those few seconds, high speed traders have been able to execute enormous volumes of trades and reap huge profits. While New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman has called for an investigation into these groups, others say that the practice is no different from fee-driven research groups who produce reports and provide analysis for their exclusive clients.
Panelists including Melvin Brosterman, a partner with Stroock & Stroock & Lavan LLP and Marcel Bucsescu, manager of The Conference Board Governance Center, will weigh in on this topic. Additional panelists TBA.
