Thank You for attending ISLA's Conference in Lisbon!

ISLA's 24th Annual Securities Finance and Collateral Management Conference has once again been a great success - thank you to all our sponsors, exhibitors, speakers and co-chairs as well as all attendees for all their input and contribution. All presentations and photos will be sent to all delegates shortly.

  • Simon Derrick, Managing Director & Head of the BNY Mellon Markets Strategy Team, The Bank of New York Mellon
  • Cornelia Holthausen, Principal Adviser, Directorate General Market Operations , European Central Bank
  • David Rule, Executive Director, Prudential Policy, Bank of England

Additionally, Cristina Casalinho has agreed to open the ISLA conference this year. Ms Casalinho has been the Chief Executive Officer of the Portuguese Treasury and Government Debt Agency since October 2014 and has a unique insight to the economic and structural issues facing Europe today.  Her extensive experience in both the private and public sectors make her ideally placed to offer a different perspective on these issues, and what they mean for Portugal and the Eurozone as a whole.

The closing keynote speech will be given by Sir Clive Woodward OBE, who famously guided England to victory in the 2003 Rugby World Cup and three Six Nations tournaments, including an elusive Grand Slam. He has since served as Director of Sport at the British Olympic Association, working in partnership with UK Sport.


The annual ISLA conference has been developed over twenty years into the key European securities finance event in the calendar. In Lisbon you will:

  • Better understand the future shape of the industry including multiple routes to market and changing demand profile
  • Consider how the industry is dealing with regulation and what it means in reality to our market
  • Debate with the industry what is driving revenues today and where future opportunities are likely to come from
  • Review with your peers where securities financing sits within a broader liquidity and collateral management world 
Organised exclusively by market participants, this conference is the only event of its kind in Europe attracting in excess of 600 attendees such as senior market participants from banks, broker dealers and asset managers, beneficial owners, hedge fund managers and securities regulators.
