The 12th Annual International Derivatives Expo took place on 3-5 June 2019 in London. Organized by FIA, the event brings together the leading industry experts, fintech startups as well as key regulators to join in the compelling discussions, leverage the networking opportunities and deepen the existing partnerships.
The intensive 2-day program included in-depth sessions complemented by an exhibit featuring over 40 firms. IDX agenda topics brought up the most important developments affecting the cleared derivatives markets, dwelling at large on the impending post-Brexit situation as well as on ways to bridge the gap between industry and regulators.
