Financial Markets Conference
Liquidity is to a market as oil is to machinery – without either, neither will run. Recognizing its importance, issues concerning liquidity are much in the focus of regulators on both sides of the Atlantic. Is liquidity adequate for large cap stocks? What are the liquidity problems facing small and mid-caps, large institutional investors, and other financial instruments? Is special regulation called for? How can a greater liquidity supply be achieved? These questions will be prominent among the issues that the conference will address.
