ISLA conference 2019: let’s talk about “Transition, Innovation, Future State”

Just a few days to go until ISLA’s 28th Annual Securities Finance and Collateral Management Conference will open its gate in Madrid. From 18 to 20 June experts will gather to discuss the current confluence of political and regulatory flows that will define much of the industry for the next five to ten years. We asked our participants Jonathan Lombardo, Matthias Graulich, Marcel Naas and Frank Gast which topics are most important to them, what they are looking forward to and their general expectations for the upcoming conference.

“The conference enables the entire community to address the issues that we, as a market, are facing daily. Regulatory impact is still permeating the industry and with SFTR, CSDR and UMR in focus this conference provides attendees with the clarity needed to better navigate the waters.”

“Brexit and in particular its longer-term implications for the EU capital markets will likely lead to changing market structures and shift of power between financial centres within Europe – I look forward for a fruitful and interesting discussion on the panel “Navigating a ‘New Europe’”.

“Market participants are striving to implement beneficial capital cost efficient methods of trading via electronic platforms and utilizing central clearing as a form of safeguard. Central clearing continues its progression and become even more important to the market as it leads to greater safety and integrity in the financial markets. The driving factor from a Eurex Clearing perspective is to aid the transformation of the securities lending market from a non-standard, bilateral OTC model to a more progressive and sustainable operating model.”
