Keynote Speech: Where are We Headed? Financial Markets 2020

It’s almost a decade after the financial crisis and five years after the uproar over HFT, and we are in the midst of a wave of dark pool scandals. What does the next five years have in store for the markets? Larry Tabb the CEO of TABB Group will discuss how the fallout from these crises will impact the industry, as capital ratios go up, and leverage comes down, and transparency/oversight intensifies. In this context Larry will discuss the transformation of the equity markets, their regulatory challenges, and how regulation on bank capital, leverage, and transparency is changing the shape of liquidity and market infrastructure in the equity, fixed income and FX markets.
