In recent remarks at The Economic Club of New York, SEC Chairman Clayton delivered off-piste remarks, “liquidity is not free… you have to pay for it, but whether we’re getting the bang for the buck on liquidity, whether it is ending up in the right place is a question I have, is a question a lot of people have; we should think about it.” In this interactive session, subject matter experts will debate whether the liquidity provision in today’s market structure strikes the proper balance between the interests of main-street investors and those of highly sophisticated liquidity providers.

The options market continues to be impacted by various regulations – many of which may have unintended consequences on market structure, including the treatment of risk weighted assets.  Regulations, like CAT, that impose new costs on broker-dealers – coupled with market fragmentation, market data fees and increasing clearing costs – have created complexity in the markets.  As the industry looks ahead, panelists will address regulation and risk as well as the necessary changes to legacy systems and rules, such as ORF and the CMTA system.
