Tuesday, September 18, 2018 (with Gala Dinner)

08.00 Registration opens

09.30 Leaders' panel: can financial services in Europe retain competitiveness? Are Europeans working in a 'bubble' in the face of competition from Asia? What would happen if regulation became an industry in itself? How can the challenges of cybersecurity be met in terms of product and platform innovation?

  • Matt Chamberlain, CEO, London Metal Exchange
  • Michael Peters, Deputy CEO and Member of the Executive Board, Eurex
  • Stuart Williams, President, ICE Futures Europe
  • V Bala Subramaniam, CEO, India INX
  • Steve Humenik, of Counsel, Covington and Burling LLP

10.30 Presentation: artificial intelligence ('AI'), the future present: demystifying AI understanding where it is already transforming processes and an insight to where it might lead

  • Matthias Plattner, Head of Technology and Platform Innovation, Global Financial Intermediaries, UBS

11.00 Refreshment and networking break, kindly sponsored by TAIFEX

12.00 Exchanges' panel: does the emergence of new exchanges and new crypto signal a new era of innovation in the exchanges industry? Will artificial intelligence change the exchange and products landscape? Can new players adopt leapfrog technology to provide regional and product-centric opportunities? Are new block trading platforms the new 'lit' dark venues?

  • Dr Randolf Roth, Member of the Executive Board, Eurex
  • Chris Rhodes, Global Head of Financial Derivatives, ICE
  • Jean-Marc Bonnefous, Managing Partner, Tellurian Capital, Board Director, Clearmatics
  • Rob Cranston, Head of Product EMEA, Liquidnet

13.00 Lunch

14.30 Fintech panel: tokenisation of assets on the blockchain. Could new assets be born on the blockchain? Reduction of capital charges may be an incentive for banks - but is a reduction in settlement time and more frictionless trade threaten legacy clearing processes/structures? Will the commodity industry be democratised through tokenisation implicit in DLT innovation? Will trustlessness radically change the commodities and derivatives landscape? What about opportunities for banks to become custodians of tokenised assets? Will DLT reduce or increase the compliance burden for the industry...?

  • Fredrick Voss - Vice-President, Market Technology, NASDAQ
  • Jean-Marc Bonnefous, Founding Partner, Tellurian Capital, Board Member, Clearmatics
  • Alex Powell, Chief Technology Officer, Euroclear UK and Ireland

15.30 Refreshment and networking break

16.00 CCPs, clearing and settlement panel: from international trade disputes, Brexit, the rolling back and the rolling out of regulation in different jurisdictions, it seems that change is the only certainty. At the heart of financial markets, CCPs are both part of the focus of the change, and charged with managing the manifold risks it brings to the markets; how can control be maintained? Progress towards international guidance on governance. Pressures upon principles-based regulation for both compliance and equivalence purposes. Is the area of clearing and settlement the most directly threatened aspect from DLT and related innovations?

  • Rafael Plata, Secretary-General, European Association of Clearing Houses
  • Roger T Storm, Deputy Head of CCP Clearing, Risk and Policy Matters, Head of Regulation, SIX x-Clear
  • Matthias Graulich, Member of the Executive Board, Eurex
  • Agnes Koh, Chief Risk Officer– Singapore Exchange
  • Robert Cox, Vice-President and Senior Policy Advisor, Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago

17.00 Oxford-style debate: some fun before the Gala Dinner. Topic: fall-out from the Brexit experience: "This House believes that geopolitics drives perceptions of 'equivalence' rather than prudence"

  • Dan Day-Robinson, Chairman, ICDA (with friends)

18.30 Burgenstock Gala Dinner (formal dress, spouses of delegates welcome)

  • Keynote speaker: Commissioner Brian Quintenz (confirmed)
