Regulators are keen for a wider universe of cash and derivatives instruments to trade on electronic platforms. A panel of experts discuss some of the challenges
There are significant efforts to push both cash and derivatives markets on to electronic trading platforms. At least part of that is a result of lessons learned from the crisis - regulators are keen for greater pre- and post-trade transparency, and see electronic trading platforms as one way of doing that. Various new regulations are coming into force, including the Dodd-Frank Act in the US and Mifid II in Europe, both of which have a large focus on trading.
On the cash side, three new electronic platforms to trade euro-denominated corporate bonds are being developed as part of the Cassiopeia project - an initiative to bring liquidity, transparency and security to the European bond market. The first of these - BondMatch by NYSE Euronext - launched in July 2011.
In this webinar, four leading experts discuss the move to electronic trading, and some of the challenges this presents.
