David Woolcock, Chair of the Committee for Professionalism, ACI – TRUE ("The move to more principle led regulatory initiatives in the unregulated markets are levelling the playing field alongside more transparent practices that will help rebuild confidence in FX markets paving the way to increasing volumes for the benefit of all.")
Robert Savage, CEO, CC Track Solutions- FALSE
Isaac Lieberman, CEO, Aston Capital Management - TRUE
- Do the positives outweigh any negatives since the regulatory regime started post 2008?
- How have various regulatory frameworks impacted how the buy and sell side trade and has this overall impact been positive or negative?
- Is the new FX market structure more efficient and reliable under this regulatory regime or is it now insufficient to meet the demands of end investors?
- Is further regulatory reform needed to alter markets further or does MiFID II signal the end of major market regulation?
