Market Structure Discussion with NYSE Leadership
The U.S. equities market is constantly evolving due to ever-increasing competition, regulation and complexity. With over 50 venues where stocks can trade, a large proportion of total trading is taking place outside of lit, or public markets. The NYSE is an advocate for listed companies to ensure that trading can take place in the most secure and transparent manner possible. Veteran Wall Street reporter Bob Pisani will lead an informative and educational discussion with NYSE leadership on market structure and what listed companies need to know.
