ICMA FinTech Forum: How is technology shaping international fixed income markets?

 

Date:
25 June 2019
Time: 13:00-18:00
Venue: UBS, London

Event overview

What are the implications of FinTech for financial market structure, dynamics, and stability? Can we expect markets to continue to function in the same way for very much longer? How will FinTech, including Distributed Ledger Technology and Artificial Intelligence, impact issuers, investors, and intermediaries, and how will they need to transform their operating models? What are the implications of FinTech and BigTech for capital markets and how is the regulatory framework evolving? The first ICMA FinTech Forum looked at how technology is shaping international fixed income markets in the next few years across the value chain from issuance to secondary market trading as well as repo and collateral management.

Featuring both keynote presentations and panels and mixing established capital market professionals with innovative technology providers and regulators, the key topics were: 
•    FinTech and innovation in the capital markets
•    DCM: how will technology shape the primary markets of the future?
•    Fixed income & repo trading: beyond electronification
•    FinTech, BigTech and regulation
