Exactpro at WFEClear 2024

The World Federation of Exchanges Annual Clearing and Derivatives Conference, WFEClear, took place on 19-21 March in Madrid, Spain. Hosted by SIX and Bolsas y Mercados Españoles (BME), the 2024 event gathered industry experts, academics, policymakers, WFE member CCPs, and derivatives exchanges to share insights on the opportunities and challenges associated with the future of central clearing.

The agenda for this year delved into various topics such as recent and upcoming regulatory, market structure and clearing developments, the role and the potential effects of distributed ledger technology (DLT) on clearing, margin and other risk management practices, technology transformations and third-party management in post trade, and more.
