Regulatory Affairs

Regulation can make the difference between markets that inspire confidence and markets that don’t. The WFE champions effective rules for the modern, global economy and its future growth.

Our unique perspective comes from uniting authorised exchanges and central counterparties (CCPs) worldwide. With extensive experience of developing and enforcing high standards, WFE members support an orderly, secure, fair and transparent environment for investors; for companies that raise capital; and for all who face risk. 

The WFE updates members on legislative developments. We analyse evidence, encourage debate and seek outcomes that maximise the common good. We also engage with major policymakers in an open, collaborative way, reflecting the central, public role that exchanges and CCPs perform in an internationally integrated financial system.
