Best Execution – Autumn 2017
It is hard to believe that ten years has passed since the collapse of Lehman Brothers and the unravelling of the financial services industry. Although many of the players have survived and thrived – most notably the US investment banks – there is no doubt that the landscape is radically different thanks to a slew of regulations continuing to shape the sector.
This is particularly true in the derivatives world where Dodd Frank, the European Market Infrastructure Regulation and the impending MiFID II have altered the nature of trading, and is a focus of this issue. Other features cover the impending EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the resurgence of block trading, the development of fintech especially in the blockchain space, and the potential impact of Brexit on the post-trade space.
