Mr. Van Kleef is a frequent speaker on complex arbitrage strategies with a focus on volatility arbitrage and high frequency algorithmic trading. "High-frequency trading is actually becoming a commodity as nowadays you can buy the necessary infrastructure rather than having to build it. Ultra high frequency trading is where people still do a lot of custom work. The next step from software in this area is hardware acceleration. It will be very challenging for regulators to understand what is good and bad. If done right, the automation certainly is in the interest of the end investor, even though not all realize that".
