The Regulation and Operation of Modern Financial Markets


September 5th 2019 to September 6th 2019

Time: all day    Venue: University of Iceland
Organisers: Systemic Risk Centre (LSE), the Chair Analytics and Models for Regulation (École Polytechnique), University of Iceland

The conference studies the operations and workings of modern financial markets and their interactions with, and needs for, financial regulations.
Topics include the market microstructure (including algorithmic and high-frequency trading in fast markets), the effects of this microstructure on liquidity, efficiency and stability and the real-world effects and implementations of financial regulations, including regtech. We aim to achieve this by bringing together practitioners, regulators and academic researchers and create a fertile environment for discussion.

Registration procedure and the programme will be available shortly.

The conference is supported by the Financial Supervisory Authority (FME), Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) [grant number ES/R009724/1] and European Research Council (ERC) [679836 STAQAMOF].
