In this issue: Welcome to this month's new style edition of WFE's FOCUS Ezine.
This month's theme is post-trade, with some of our members sharing their views on the big post-trade themes as they see them. Comments include distributed ledger, the supplemental leverage ratio, further regulation and further clearing initiatives.
In this month's Interview section, IOMA/WFE's 2016 Clearing and Derivatives Conference's host exchange, Bursa Malaysia talks to WFE. CEO Datuk Seri Tajuddin Atan discusses markets, technology, sustainability and exchange initiatives. WFE also speaks with Nasdaq President Hans Ole Jochumsen on its Blockchain initiative with Estonia.
The addition of a new 'Dashboard' section, together with WFE market insight, recent exchange headlines and WFE market statistics ensure a comprehensive and detailed overview of the news and statistics that matter.
Also in this issue, regulatory risk analysts Mlex share with us the most relevant global regulatory developments, including EU governments' support for the EU-US accord on derivatives clearing, and the European Commission's recognition of the equivalence of the US rules for derivatives clearing.
These are both very positive developments in avoiding a damaging US – EU schism in derivatives clearing. Finally, we look forward to seeing you at the IOMA/WFE Clearing and Derivatives Conference in Kuala Lumpur, April 17 – 19. There will be lots to discuss.
