“SIFMA’s Annual Meeting is an excellent forum for buy-side, sell-side, platforms, regulators – all market participants – to come together and hear one another’s perspectives.”
“I attend SIFMA’s Annual Meeting because 1) it’s a great networking opportunity, 2) it is a great way to learn, and 3) the industry is coming together to think about ways that we can collaborate to solve challenges.”
“It’s an opportunity to get a ton of useful information, network with the right people and really get an opportunity to see what’s going on in the industry, what’s current.”

There is a confluence of revolutionary events coming that will fundamentally alter our markets and make the world look radically different in even just three short years. From Brexit to “no deal,” LIBOR to SOFR, fintech to finreg, here’s what we heard on the floor of The Capital Markets Conference.
With a day and a half of presentations and events at SIFMA's 2018 Annual Meeting, we gained insights into top-of-mind topics for market participants. Inside this note, we recap just some of what was seen and heard.
In a fireside chat, Ken Bentsen discusses SIFMA's role on behalf of our members and priorities for the capital markets with our 2018 Chair, Lisa Hunt of Charles Schwab and 2019, Jim Allen of Hilliard Lyons.
See photos from over two days of candid one-on-one conversations, expert panel discussions, in-depth breakout sessions and networking events with senior executives and the foremost policymakers, regulators and financial market experts.
$200 trillion of financial contracts and securities are tied to LIBOR and that matters to everyone – small businesses, corporations, banks, dealers and investors. Here, Sandie O’Connor and David Bowman discuss how the Alternative Reference Rates Committee (ARRC) of the Federal Reserve is leading the U.S. transition to the Secured Overnight Financing Rate (SOFR).
Capital markets recognize and drive capital to the best ideas and enterprises. In this foundation for the primer series from SIFMA Insights, published as we gather for SIFMA's 2018 Annual Meeting, we provide a fundamental overview of U.S. capital markets and financial institutions.
