The World Federation of Exchanges (WFE) panel on Thursday at a special meeting in London focused on the role of its members in preserving market integrity.
According to WFE, the ongoing debate will focus on the key themes in its recently published report on Market integrity and market infrastructures: A post-crisis journey and a vision for the future, co-authored with Oliver Wyman.
The challenges posed by cyber security and the post-Brexit landscape, and the partnership between public authorities and market infrastructures in ensuring safe and efficient markets, as well as the impact of crypto-platform regulations, will be key issues for discussion at the event.
Speakers at the debate will include: Daniela Peterhoff, Global Head of Market Infrastructure, Oliver Wyman; Edward Tilly, Chairman and CEO of Cboe Global Markets, and Chairman of the WFE’s Working Committee; Veronica Augustsson, CEO of Cinnober, and the WFE’s CEO, Nandini Sukumar. Attendees include stakeholders from the buy side, regulators, media and the policy community, along with WFE members.
The event coincides with a meeting of the WFE’s Working Committee, also taking place in London. Representatives of the WFE’s global membership are gathering today to discuss the latest trends in financial markets and policymaking, as well as the work of the WFE on industry-specific areas such as ICOs and the regulation of crypto platforms; issues arising for market infrastructures from Brexit; standard-setting; and sustainability.
The Working Committee, which brings together the policy and technical experts of the association’s membership, is the foundation of the WFE’s ongoing work in policy, research and education. It conducts its work via 10 subject-specific Working Groups, and meets three times a year.
Nandini Sukumar, CEO, WFE said: “As our paper with Oliver Wyman concludes, market integrity is an essential part of market infrastructures’ role in society. We are pleased to be bringing together leaders from across the market infrastructure spectrum to continue this important debate, as ongoing collaboration and partnerships with policymakers and other stakeholders becomes ever more important today, and in the years to come.”
