London

Themed ‘Securities Lending Post Trade – Evolution or Revolution?’, this year’s event will once again be a mix of panel discussions, breakout sessions as well as keynote presentations; all designed to explore the various drivers affecting the post trade environment and how they might shape the future. With the industry now focused very much on regulatory implementation of SFTR and MiFID II in Europe, what might the implications on infrastructure be, will all functions be ready? How might emerging and existing technologies respond to a fundamentally changing operating model?

Please join us as we debate answers to these and many other questions in a live and interactive forum.

This is a free event for delegates from ISLA member firms, however spaces are limited. Anyone who wishes to attend should therefore ensure they register and confirm their place as soon as possible once registration is open.
