In Stockholm on 4 September, this European top-level panel will look into the drivers and obstacles when it comes to cross-border competition among financial market infrastructure operators. Will the EU’s Capital Markets Union initiative make a difference? Consider securing your free conference ticket already today.

The EU is envisioning its Capital Markets Union but so far, financial markets infrastructures have largely remained domestic businesses organised per member state, under scarce competition. (Their supervisory authorities, too, are still national.) Who benefits and loses from this, and what changes could we actually be up for? What setup would best support the continent’s financial market, which – at least on comparison with the US – shows a lacklustre performance?

On the panel, meet top seniors representing European exchanges, CSDs and clearinghouses alike, joined by competition advocate Karel Lannoo (interviewed by PostTrade 360° here).
