Technology and Regulation
How Are They Driving Our Markets?
- (view affiliations)
Two primary drivers have transformed the equity markets in recent years: technological advances and regulatory initiatives. How does modern, electronic technology facilitate trading, and to what extent does it present new challenges? How does regulation adjust to the changing structure of the markets, and to what extent is it itself a source of change? What are the new problems and solutions for handling institutional orders? On both sides of the Atlantic, what are the overall impacts of technology and regulation on market quality? The conference resulting in this volume brought together buyside and sellside practitioners, regulators, and academicians to address these and related issues.
The Zicklin School of Business Financial Markets Series presents the insights emerging from a sequence of conferences hosted by the Zicklin School at Baruch College for industry professionals, regulators, and scholars. Much more than historical documents, the transcripts from the conferences are edited for clarity, perspective and context; material and comments from subsequent interviews with the panelists and speakers are integrated for a complete thematic presentation. Each book is focused on a well delineated topic, but all deliver broader insights into the quality and efficiency of the U.S. equity markets and the dynamic forces changing them.
