Journal of Financial Market Infrastructures

Today, in the light of the financial crisis, it has become part of the political agenda to strengthen payment, clearing and settlement systems, as well as repositories for data on the trades they process. The Journal of Financial Market Infrastructures is the first journal to focus on this exciting and dynamic sector, and aims to bring together a community of contributors from the constituent sectors to analyse financial market infrastructures to further the development of this emerging field.

The journal provides a balanced representation of academic and practitioner focused papers which are dedicated to analysing operational and regulatory effectiveness and efficiency of payment, clearing, settlement, trade repository systems; and the risks they manage, transmit and create.
