BSX to host World Federation of Exchanges
The Bermuda Stock Exchange is to host the 2023 general assembly and annual meeting of the World Federation of Exchanges.
The global meeting of exchange and clearing leaders will be held from September 19 to 21.
The meeting, now in its 62nd year, gathers the leaders of exchanges and central counterparties around the world to think, engage, listen and speak to stakeholders.
It is by invitation-only and is the largest and most important gathering of market infrastructure leaders.
The BSX, which became a WFE member in 1999, has been a WFE board member since 2016.
Nandini Sukumar, chief executive of the WFE, said: “This is the first time in WFE history that our global membership delegation from over 90 countries and nationalities will have the opportunity to attend a WFE meeting in Bermuda.
“The exchange is at the centre of Bermuda’s capital market and is the global leader in the listing of insurance linked securities.’’
Established in 1961, the WFE is the global industry association for exchanges and clearing houses.
Headquartered in London, it represents about 300 market infrastructure providers, including stand alone CCPs that are not part of exchange groups.
Greg Wojciechowski, chief executive officer of the BSX, said: “The WFE general assembly and annual meeting is an important meeting for our industry and will be an excellent opportunity to showcase Bermuda’s strength in financial services.
“The BSX team and Bermuda look forward to welcoming the WFE delegation in September 2023.”
