Fireside Chat: Solving the prudential puzzle: How European derivatives markets will benefit from meaningful change in IFR/IFD

It is widely recognized that the European economy needs more vibrant and liquid capital markets to provide for the safety and wellbeing of European citizens. Derivatives markets are a key contributor to this. As policy makers are mulling over the ways to reinvigorate European capital markets, one critical element will need to be meaningful change to the prudential rules for investment firms (IFR/IFD).

- How have the IFR/IFD rules affected European liquidity providers?

- Why should all users of the derivatives markets care about these impacts?

- How we can turn things around to make European derivatives markets more globally competitive?
