Market participants are steering their way through the complex matrix of various regulatory initiatives tinted with new market entries and increasing competition to assure their position and make the best use possible of the tightening obligations.

The expert speakers and panelists of the Post-Trade Forum 2014 are going to share their professional insight and experience on the current market situation, how to successfully adapt and implement regulatory requirements.

As usual the event will also provide an excellent opportunity to network with industry peers, while allowing the participants to establish new business contacts.
