In response to widespread concerns that the cumulative impact of current and proposed regulatory reform threatens to undermine core aspects of the economic functions of trading in the European repo and fixed income markets, ICMA has produced a paper entitled Avoiding Counterproductive Regulation in Capital Markets.  ICMA sees this paper as a first step in a process of open-ended engagement with policy makers, to whom it has been sent, and looks forward to the opportunity of engaging in subsequent discussions about the best ways in which the concerns expressed in it can most effectively be addressed.
