fargo and door should bank -- unfoldingdeutsche bank are beyond us. what you think should happen? regulations, in just the last six years, is more than what was done in the six years prior. the level of capital and the quality of capital for banks has never been higher. the rules, market functions, never greater. no question there is need for greater capital needs and market rules. at the same time, we see that we have subpar growth in the u.s., we see negative growth in other parts of the world and a desire to balance stability with economic growth. this is something we hear regulators talk about, the industry is talking about it. doing a review, looking at the calibration of the rules, are

12:37 pm
attribute the low growth environment to now? more cyclical? >> i think part of it is cyclical. part of it is structural. we came out of a very deep recession, no doubt. rules put inand place, no doubt, all of this has manya confluence that in respects may have tampered the ability to allocate sufficient credit and capital at the level we need to grow. you see policymakers and other parts of the globe saying, maybe we need to take a look at where we are calibrated and make sure we are funding the new business development and new technology development coming out, not going back to excess liquidity,
12:38 pm

outperforming the s&p 500. you could not have said that in 2014 or 15. when we look at our backlog, we now have 116 companies filed to go public. that is higher than we had at this time last year. i think there are good signs. in addition, we had our best ipo week of the year last week. nine companies coming public, eight of them on nasdaq. they priced and traded well, which is good to see. we have an important ipo coming up this friday. certainly exciting. you feel the momentum. won most of the companies, butd what is your pitch to those companies to choose the nasdaq over other exchanges? you come public, you
1:09 pm
face an endless series of quarters. we have a unique set of corporate solutions, services, and products to help them as they go through that evolution, and face the quarterly grind of being a public company. that is a clear differentiator to what we do. we are also proud of our market, market structure, how we trade for the investors in those companies. your business is evolving as well, you bought three option exchanges. bats is a tech-forward player. how formidable of a competitor to dig expect them to be? >> our business model is different from those companies. 75% of our revenue is based on non-transactional businesses. player to about 15,000 companies around the world. those are two good transaction focus companies, coming together, there will be synergies they can realize.
1:10 pm
but strategically does not change either one of them. we love our transaction business , 25% of our revenue. we expect to do well in it, but it's a different business model. emily: some speculation that cbo we may be open to selling that cash equity platform after the acquisition. would you be open to buying that? >> i don't think we would be in a position to do that relative to our strength in the markets today. we have 74% of the ipo's. thatve an arsenal of tools we deliver to our customers and that is somewhat unmatched right now. emily: do you expect more consolidation? of an transaction part exchange is a transaction processing company, so once you build a plant to process those transactions, the marginal cost of doing the next transaction, contract approaches zero. that provides industrial logic
1:11 pm
of why you would want to put two organizations together. plant, two plants, you can consolidate down to one, and you can recognize benefit to your shareholders and customers. that will always be an undercurrent in the exchange world, sometimes front and center, but will always be there. emily: there are shifts happening in financial exchange technology. iex is putting in speed funds with high-frequency trading. how do you see this evolving? >> we are proud of what we introduced to the marketplace, a long life order. what we want to do -- i should say, the biggest thing exchange can do is control the priority of who gets executed first. what we are saying clearly, if you put your order in for a longer printer of time, we will move you to the top of the queue so that you are the next person executed -- getting executed. if you are faster but not willing to commit to time, you will be lower in the priority queue.
1:12 pm
positive impact because people can opt in to do that but they don't have to. there is no penalty or delay associated with it, but certainly, a reward if you can provide liquidity to the market for a certain period of time which is longer than others. obviously, the landscape is changing quickly. what is nasdaq's response to this, how do you rise to the change in competition? the listing side, it is remarkable the amount of services we provide to our companies that directly correlates our increased win rate. it is one thing to have a great market open, and we do a innomenal job here and back new york city, but once you are public, it is an endless series of quarters. we are uniquely with our customers through the whole quarterly process of being a public company. on the transaction side, trading of the stock, when you look at
1:13 pm
our option technology, opening and closing the market is the best in the industry. our long life order, which we are introducing, is a major positive innovation. compared to artificial speedboats, is a positive development for the investors. i think that will help foster medically. when the unexpected happens, what kind of internal control do you have in place? there has been some concern that the nasdaq lies too heavily on technology. obviously, facebook has gone on to do well, but what are the internal controls you have in place when crashes happen? >> that is something we live with all the time. in addition to providing technology for our own markets, we run 22 markets around the planet. we are also a technology provider to 90 other exchanges around the planet. when we think about what we're doing any given day, how much we are dependent on technology, we have to develop tremendous rigor in terms of how we develop,
1:14 pm
release, and support our products. in every step of that process, we are truly world-class. we also recognize with technology you will never be perfect. you have to aspire to be perfect but you have to come up with remediation plans when you have a technology snafu. we are also world-class with that. but it is pervasive and influences everything we do. emily: you are also using block chain technology, something that a lot of people are still trying to understand. how do you see that impacting the evolution of trading technology? block chain technology will completely eviscerate the current post rate mechanisms that exist in our marketplace. i think that will be true across all asset classes. that is the easy prediction and i have no doubt that will happen. the harder prediction is when. with all of this post race activity, it will take a village. but you cannot get away from the inescapable fact that, compared
1:15 pm
to how we do it today, technology can be a trusted advisor that then obviates the need for existing infrastructure. emily: you guys have the biggest tech-heavyweight, app is on -- apple, amazon, facebook, caring the most weight in the nasdaq composite right now. lot over thed a years. how do you see changing over the next decade? came to nasdaq 13 years ago, and that than the other exchanges had what would be the larger market cap companies. today, the companies you mentioned are not just the largest tech companies but the largest companies on the planet by market cap. take great pride, as i'm sure you do, being in the valley, knowing that the biggest companies in the world are here. you think prospectively, they are more important now, as you compare yourself to an oil and gas company.
1:16 pm
we are proud to have those companies listed on our market representing the future. so with respect to your question, certainly a large part of the index. our market, i think, has done o allow theset t companies to grow over the years. we are proud of that. the way our market works, attracting capital to have the availability of a deep and liquid post-ipo or secondary marketplace, certainly has done its part to help in their success. emily: i know you have your year to the ground with some of these companies. on the otherd exchange, speculation about what's happening to them. disney is talking to financial advisors, sales force potentially, alphabet. what happens to twitter? outside of my areas of expertise. idea tohave no good
1:17 pm
your guess would be as good as mine. certainly, in an abstract sense, when you have a lot of large players with tremendous cash on their balance sheet, m&a activity, as i said previously, is here, at a high level. i think it will maintain itself at a high level. emily: bob greifeld, thanks for joining us. scarlet, back to you. scarlet: thank you. that was emily chang speaking with bob greifeld, ceo of the nasdaq. you will want to tune in this she will beuse h interviewing the former chief of google china. is coming uption at 6:30 eastern time. this is bloomberg. ♪

scarlet: this is "bloomberg markets." i'm scarlet fu. harsha: i'm harsha subramaniam. there was a lot at stake for investors and last night's debate between donald trump and hillary clinton. one investors paying close attention is tony james, chief investment officer of blackstone group, clinton supporter, and recent author. we spoke exclusively with him earlier today. >> i think the candidates painted a great contrast between the two of them. if nothing else, they crystallized the issues. hillary came across as cool under fire, struck a nice balance between being tough but not overly aggressive. was well-informed, had her fax and policies, clearly, the adult in the room. donald was interesting for a while but became very repetitious after a while, and for me -- of course, i'm biased
1:21 pm
-- but a little bit grating. i did not learn a whole lot from either candidate here and think both were true to form. in that sense, i'm not sure they changed the balance of the election much. are an undecided voter in north carolina, michigan, pennsylvania -- into the debate with high expectation that he would fall flat or she would be cowed, or they would deviate from the remarks, but that didn't happen. voters will be seeing what happens in the next couple of debates. trap one of the things hammered on was his cut taxes. it would revolve -- involve a reduction in the federal corporate tax rate from 35% down to 15%. wondering,'ve been why is in his tax proposal more popular among ceos?
1:22 pm
>> i don't think anybody takes him seriously. he kept hammering away at the amount of debt the government has and that he is talking about a tax plan that will bloom the deficit. it is just irresponsible trump talk. i don't think ceos take it seriously. erik: is it mathematically possible? >> it is mathematically possible if you want huge deficits. erik: there is no way to pay for it. >> i don't think so. erik: you have a knowledge you are a clinton supporter. a financier. she is also promising a lot. i won at go through the laundry list but you heard a lot of the last night. proposing to pay for almost all of it by raising taxes on the wealthy and closing corporate loopholes. my question, i suppose, is, is b, goodlistic, and ,b
1:23 pm
policy? with the economy right now is there is not enough demand. one of the things holding back demand is income inequality. income more that evenly, whether through taxes or other means like minimum wage, i think we can increase demand, get more economic growth, and it will be good for everyone. that the wealthy can afford to say -- pay somewhat more taxes? yes, i do. but i don't think alone a that will do it. erik: you cannot find enough money. >> no, you can't. erik: or you may find people moving to another country. >> there is just not enough that way. erik: equity futures rose during and after the debate. the mexican peso moved, and interesting indicator. it was taken as a sign that investors judged hillary clinton the winner. if that is the case, if that is
1:24 pm
how markets react, why haven't markets been pricing in the growing odds, even if they are still not 50%, of a trump presidency? >> i don't think the market has reacted all that strongly after the debate. hillary held her own, and that eliminate some level of ,ncertainty, and as a result mark do not like uncertainty, so they will strengthen a bit. but that is an interesting conundrum, and investors have talked about that. --hink the answer to that is put the polls aside. they just do not think trump is going to win. they are just discounting that. number two, trying to assess what a trump presidency would mean, it is unknowable. you don't know what his policy would be, advisors, anything. it is hard to handicap that. erik: take a stab at that.
1:25 pm
what haircut would you put on the s&p 500 it he would win? i wouldn't know how to do that. i don't think he will win. markets are much more negative about his chances than the polls. schatzkerat was erik speaking to tony james. scarlet: it is time for the bloomberg business flash. rough year for nike, one of the long-standing darlings of wall street. shares are down 13% this year and analysts are losing market share. nike will get a chance to answer their critics when the report quarterly earnings today. a top u.s. justice official is warning banks they should corporate with mortgage bond investigations. the department's official says banks are to blame for delaying resolutions, warning lenders that they will face billions in

let's get the bloomberg first word news with mark crumpton. republican senators challenged fbi director james comey today on whether anything more could have been done to recent acts of a string mist of violence, including the orlando nightclub massacre and the manhattan bombing. rand paul of kentucky said he was alarmed that both men had at one point been on the fbi radar but were not intercepted. director komi pushed back. the bomber in new york, who is still alive, will have a trial, and i hope sentenced to jail for the rest of his life. your facts are wrong about what his father told the fbi. we will gos well, back and scrub our contact with that matter carefully, and maybe the inspector general will as well, which is great. if there is learning, we will learn from it. that director komi said his actions in new york do not point to a larger terror cell.

have had an etf trading desk for a number of years. we launched our first etf two euros ago to bring more products to our financial advisor clients who are really looking for investment get ability like ours in the etf wrapper. why is it attractive for investors, why is it attractive to you? >> more importantly, why is attractive to the financial advisers. this is a wonderful time for us in the market. you have half of etf's, active middlethis area in the that the market is calling smart beta etf's. a wonderful set of choices for investors. for us, we have had financial advisers deployed etf's more portfolios for their clients, and they're asking for our best investment strategies. talk about the etf that is meant to mimic a hedge fund. isn't meant to replace a hedge
1:34 pm
fund eventually? >> i don't know if it is meant to replace it, but it is meant to democratize or bring a hedge fund strategy to any investor. you could buy a share of this fund. you don't need to have a million dollars to invest. this is jphf. there is a set of hedge fund strategies built in, we deploy in a rules-based way, and we effectively are object -- our objective is to provide hedge fund-like returns. but in an etf which is accessible to clients, and at a fee under 1%, compared to mo st hedge funds where it is much more. harsha: what is the strategy, where is this money being deployed? to 80% ofure close hedge fund strategies in this one strategy. think of it like a multi strand hedge fund in an etf. it employs global macro
1:35 pm
strategy, long start strategy, and is event-driven. we capture most hedge fund strategies in one fund, and the intent is to provide a single digit-like returns with a correlation to the broad equity markets of about .3. scarlet: citigroup has written that the market is oversaturated with etf's, new etf's. he cited a couple of new all in the past year. he says it may be an increasing challenge to scale assets under management. and that that would eventually weigh on margins and multiples. what do you think of that? >> there is a challenge in building scale. we are still in the middle innings of the etf business. of, there has been a lot funds about talk to market, you will continue to see it happen. i think it will grow for the next 10 years. what you're seeing in this proliferation is a lot of funds
1:36 pm
that are very narrow, tactical. they do one small thing that may be useful for an institutional investor. we are trying to bring core product to the individual investor to our financial advisors, whether it is through our suite of products or our hedge fund product. these should perform through market cycles. you did see a lot of etf money floating across global markets. what is your own reading of liquidity? >> of global markets? harsha: coming into etf's. iswhat we are seeing broadly some flow of money going out of mutual funds, significant increase in two etf's. our strategy is highly liquid, our suite of liquidity -- equity fund play in the markets. we don't have any concerns about liquidity at this point in the market relative to our fund. scarlet: speaking of liquidity's

1:38 pm
why should i know a lot at a traditional hedge fund? but younk you should, have to be a qualified investor with a certain level of assets. you don't need to do that with jphf. for a financial advisor managing money for even affluent clients, they may take 5% or 10% for a hedge fund. this will fit that for them. even if you can access a hedge fund, you are paying 2% fees and 20% of your return out. this is 1% all in. the fees alone, you should at least consider as you make the comparison. scarlet: i know jp morgan, the investment bank, is looking to issue a copper etf. what is the difference between j.p. morgan asset management versus the investment bank etf that you launch? >> that was an idea that we explored at the investment bank
1:39 pm
and decided to put to rest a couple years ago, so that is not happening. the investment bank runs, a set of structured notes. amj, you showed on the screen. they have a trading desk. happensetf issuance with the product management we are talking about. harsha: thanks for joining us, robert deutsch. scarlet: earlier this month, goldman sachs chief economist said there was only a one in four chance the federal reserve would increase rates in september and it didn't. is an over 50%re probability of rates rising in december. earlier today, he outlined why there is a greater chance af whimsy will hike before the end of the year. wei am certainly seeing that are moving closer to full employment, upward pressure on wage growth. 2.5% instead of 2%. not dramatic but a pickup. because productivity numbers have been pretty soft, that is
1:40 pm
also feeding through into higher unit labor costs, inflation, and pricento core consumer and pce inflation. all of the signals are suggesting that we are now pretty close to full employment and are starting to exert some upward pressure on inflation. i think the fed will respond to that. gradually but they will respond. >> you see the december rate hike camp up. longer-term, that medium green line came down to 2.87% in the last meeting. matchup with a longer-term growth rate of 1.8%? those numbers do not match up to me and implies the fed is that much more hawkish than the markets think. >> i think it matches up. you have to look at real versus reales
1:41 pm
growth in the economy. 1.8% anddp growth is real interest rates are 1% or less, which is essentially implied by this chart, i think that matches up. you could even say that the areers in the fed dot plot low relative to the real growth in the economy. is notlationship particularly tied, so i don't want to overstate that point, but i don't think the terminal rate in the dot plot is strikingly high relative to the growth in the economy. >> where are you on december when it comes to the fed? is down 40%. last i heard, you are over 50%. how confident are you? >> 65% confident. there is roughly a one in three
1:42 pm
view, that the move slips into 2017. if the economy does that we expect between now and the end show steady namely growth, labor market improvement, and pickup in more than 65%m confident that we will get a rate hike. future isrse, the always unpredictable. scarlet: that was jan hog-ti atzius. you are looking live at hillary clinton rallying in raleigh, north carolina, one day after her debate with donald trump in which a lot of the media experts and parts of the financial markets have indicated she was the victor. you can watch that speech on the live go on bloomberg. we will monitor and bring any headlines. gender diversity does not just sound good, it is good
