Overview

For 45 years, SIFMA’s Operations Conference & Exhibition has gathered operations, technology and regulatory leaders from across the securities industry to collaborate, share information and address challenges.

As the industry continues to evolve – responding to regulatory changes, shortening the settlement cycle, tapping into the transformative potential of technology and driving smarter efficiencies – today’s innovation is presenting new ways for firms to understand and interact with their customers, businesses, and the markets.

Join us at OPS 2018 as we explore the practical applications of breakthrough technologies in operations, compliance and the implementation of regulatory changes, evolving investor engagement, and management of new risks in support of safe and resilient capital markets.

As we plan for OPS 2018, view the 2017 program.
