Exchange Leaders’ Keynote
Hear CEOs from the leading exchanges as they give their views on the current issues facing the exchange-traded derivatives industry and provide insight into what the landscape will look like going forward.
The Outlook for Asia-Pacific Exchanges
As global markets face significant levels of uncertainty and unprecedented change from shifts in regulatory, geo-political and socio-economic environments, Asia-Pacific exchange-traded derivatives markets are moving quickly to adapt and focus on regional developments. What are the trends in this region? How are these exchanges thriving and competing in this dynamic environment? A cross-section of the region’s exchange leadership will discuss the challenges they face and the opportunities which have emerged in the regional exchange-traded derivatives market.
Asia-Pacific Regulatory Trends
Asia-Pacific is one of the world’s most dynamic regions. From an increased focus on sustainability to a greater emphasis on data privacy and cybersecurity regulations, there continues to be a constant flow of regulatory developments in the region that impact the exchange traded derivatives marketplace. Join our panel of experts as they share the key regulatory trends they see on the horizon, and what challenges and opportunities lie ahead.
Chinese Markets: Global Environment
China’s economic expansion has spurred huge growth in recent years which is being reflected in the emergence of its listed derivatives sector on the world stage. This is even more relevant with the much-anticipated recent publication of the Draft China Futures Law. Our panel of experts will discuss the significance of these events, what’s needed to enhance market access, what we can expect to see in the coming years and the long-term impact on the global landscape.
Day 1 Concludes
Schedule subject to change.
Future State: Where do we go from here?
For the past decade Asia-Pacific economies have been some of the fastest growing markets in the world but have been significantly impacted by the recent global pandemic. This has hastened the emergence of innovative solutions and products for these markets to remain competitive. Among these developments include mainstreaming of digital assets as well as exchanges developing new products and offerings. What impact will these have? How will they help shape the exchange traded derivatives landscape? This panel of key industry players will offer their views on these developments along with their views on what they feel is in store for the year ahead.
Universally, the industry recognises the importance of strengthening and enhancing operational functions within the exchange cleared derivatives ecosystem. Additional stresses have been placed on processes and systems as a result of remote working brought about by the pandemic. How do we improve the resilience and robustness of the infrastructures, and support? Our panellists will come together to assess how to manage remote workforce and retain talent, how operations are adapting to this new environment, explore new innovations and discuss what new skills are needed.
Asia CCPs: Clearing Trends
Central clearing has always been the foundation of the futures industry. Recent increased market volatility related to the pandemic, changes in regulations, new rules and more stringent requirements are increasing the burden on central counterparties as well as providing growth opportunities. Representatives from CCPs conducting business in Asia will discuss the various clearing trends and how they are operating under these new conditions.
Day 2 Concludes
