Research

The WFE Research team conducts research into areas of relevance for its global membership base, either independently or in conjunction with partners.

Our research is intended to stimulate discussion on the key topics impacting market infrastructures; assist in informing the debate on those issues; and enhance the understanding of the economic and social role of exchanges and CCPs in the economies in which they operate. Our work takes the form of member surveys, briefing notes, and more detailed research reports. 

We have published reports and studies into the rapidly evolving exchange and CCP landscape covering a range of areas including: public policy, technology, SMEs, emerging markets, market structure and sustainability.
