SEFCON V Conference: Analyzing SEFs and the Derivatives Trading Industry

| FinReg

If you needed any further evidence of the long and winding road that derivatives reform has taken since the days when the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act was beginning to take root, look no further than SEFCON.  Now in its fifth year, the industry conference was one of the first to talk about what a SEF was back in 2010.

This year’s conference, SEFCON V, will be held on Tuesday, November 12 at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in New York. Among the featured guest speakers at the conference are CFTC Chairman Timothy Massad and ISDA CEO and former CFTC Commissioner Scott D. O’Malia, along with a group of leading market participants and industry analysts.

Chris Amen, head of U.S. institutional rates markets at Tradeweb will be amid those leading the discussion on a panel titled SEF Tech. The panel will examine the technological solutions being implemented in response to challenges facing SEFs and market participants, whether technology is a differentiator for SEFs and integration of front-end systems for SEF trading among other topics.

With just over one full year of SEF trading under their belts, industry participants will address the lessons learned over the last 12 months, discuss cross border regulatory challenges and review overall SEF volumes.
