SIFMA is bringing together leading industry professionals and regulators to address the changing landscape of the U.S. securities markets and the many regulatory and legislative proposals recently issued by, or anticipated from, the SEC, exchanges, FINRA and Congress. These proposals address all aspects of our market structure, including market-wide and single stock circuit breakers, algorithmic trading, high frequency trading, hidden liquidity/dark pools, and market making. Keynote speakers and panelists will offer their views on these and other proposals, including their insights into the proposals' impact for years to come. Discussions also will focus on the shifting universe of trading platforms and on firms' innovative business strategies (encompassing those from the buy-side, sell-side, and the exchanges) in the face of this changing landscape.
