The governance of financial markets: participants, institutions and infrastructure; is a matter of significant regulatory, stability and commercial focus. The accounting scandals in the late 1990s (Waste Management, Enron, Worldcom, Arthur Andersen, Tyco) highlighted the general need to strengthen governance and develop clear frameworks to identify, measure, manage and disclose risks. Yet, in spite of many needed reforms in both governance and risk management, the global financial crisis of 2007/08 once more put the governance in the spotlight and emphasised the impact it has on the integrity and stability of financial markets.
This one-day workshop will assist participants to understand governance of financial markets in carrying out the core objectives of securities regulation: investor protection, fair, efficient and transparent markets and the reduction of system risk. The workshop places special emphasis on the governance and risk management of the market infrastructures such as central counterparties, central securities depositories, trade repositories and exchanges that run the world’s financial markets.
