Securities Finance Technology Symposium 2019


We would like to thank all of our sponsors, exhibitors, speakers and delegates for attending and supporting this year's event. With an oversubscribed event, and over 200 delegates attending, the event has been once again a great success. 

Securities finance is an essential part of financial markets. The European Commission has adopted the seven delegated regulations comprising the Securities Financing Transactions Regulation (SFTR) level II legislation with firms set to go live with SFTR reporting in Q2 2020. Technology will play an important role for firms in adhering to the regulation: reporting, data validation, reconciliation and so many other areas.

Aside from incoming regulation securities financing has other issues ranging from collateral liquidity to Brexit casting a shadow. But the industry remains strong, which is in part down to successful technology vendors aiding in tackling challenges that regulators and an evolving market landscape are presenting.

The Securities Finance Technology Symposium will also assess the future shape of the industry’s new market infrastructure from DLT to P2P, data to regulation, post-trade to AI, and more.

This event offers a chance to consider how technology can assist in every step in the life cycle of a trade, making it a central topic for everyone going forward.
