Key FIA-led initiatives

FIA holds an annual coordinated industry effort to test business continuance and functionality between exchanges, clearinghouses and their member firms.

Our members are working to educate the public on the benefits of electronic trading, provide policymakers with expert feedback on regulatory proposals, and promote best practices in risk controls.
