We were delighted to welcome David Clark (Chairman, European Venues and Intermediaries Association) as our Chairman who spoke candidly about the Libor scandal and the financial crisis which ultimately led to the establishment of the FX Global Code of Conduct in May 2017.
Throughout the day our Finance Hive members participated in round table discussions dealing with issues as diverse as ‘using algos under regulatory reforms’ and ‘accessing Moscow as a financial centre’.
Without a doubt, the highlight of the day was a revealing interview with Kay Swinburne, MEP for Wales who spoke to Anthony Belchambers (Financial Services Negotiating Forum Advisory Board) about the impact of Brexit negotiations on the FX trading community in particular looking at issues such as equivalence, clearing and Boris Johnson’s relationship with Brussels.
We look forward to welcoming our Finance Hive members to our 2018 London Global FX meeting. To register your interest please contact Julie Nicolas, email firstname.lastname@example.org
