Bookmark and Share

New York, NY, Oct. 18, 2010Baruch College’s Zicklin School of Business welcomes an array of securities and trading experts on Oct. 19 to discuss changes in the structure and operations of the equity markets over the last several years. Although the transition from manual to electronic trading has been an enormous change, the same issues of transparency, competition (consolidation/fragmentation) and fairness still remain. Commissions, spreads and market impact costs have been reduced, but has market quality improved? This key question will be addressed from the differing perspectives of buyside and sellside participants and regulators.

The day’s speakers include: Dan Mathisson, head of advanced execution services at Credit Suisse; Reto Francioni, CEO of Deutsche Börse AG; and Richard Ketchum, chairman and CEO of FINRA. See a complete agenda for the day.

What: "The Quality of Our Financial Markets: Taking Stock of Where We Stand"            

When: Tuesday, October 19, 2010, 8:45 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Where: Baruch College, Newman Vertical Campus, 55 Lexington Avenue at 24th Street, 14th floor
