On the stage of the global finance, where the shadow of the crisis is still lingering and its repercussions are being felt all over the world, regulators along with financial institutions strive for the harmonisation of the still fragmented post-trade market. Market participants are steering their way through the complex matrix of various regulatory initiatives tinted with new market entries and increasing competition to assure their position and make the best use possible of the tightening obligations. Apart from roadmaps and guidelines that assist in the understanding of the complicated market infrastructure, real-time tools and automated IT structures are also easing the regulatory pressure.

The expert speakers and panelists of the Post-Trade Forum 2014 are going to share their professional insight and experience on the current market situation, how to successfully adapt and implement regulatory requirements. They will also provide an outlook on the current global landscape and reveal strategies on how to keep up with the innovations and incorporate them in your existing business mode. As usual the event will also provide an excellent opportunity to network with industry peers, while allowing the participants to establish new business contacts.
