Financial Markets Conferences
Rapidly Changing Securities Markets:
Who Are the Initiators?
In the 15 years that have passed since the 1997 Order Handling Rules were instituted, the equity markets have experienced tremendous technology innovation, intensified competition between an expanding set of alternative trading venues, and continuing regulatory change. Who, specifically, have the key initiators been? In response, how has market quality evolved over this fifteen year period? What further structural and regulatory changes are still called for? These are among the key questions that the conference will address.
