While the response to COVID-19 has led to changes across the world, the options markets continue to evolve in response to an ecosystem that currently counts 16 listed options exchanges.  This panel will examine the viability and growth of the exchanges and its impact on market makers.  Panelists will also explore strike listings (will this ever get done?), areas where the industry and exchanges can work together and the market’s response and resiliency to the emergence of COVID-19 in March 2020.

In 2020, the listed options exchanges and OCC continued their focus on strengthening options market resiliency while reducing risk to clearing firms.  2020 also brought an effective date for the long-awaited SA-CCR rule designed to improve the punitive treatment of risk weighted assets for market makers.  Panelists will explore the impact of these changes as well as the current state of the options regulatory fee, options enforcement and how CAT may impact this and an update on the new Rule 606 reporting requirements.
