WFE's Clearing and Derivatives Conference 2021

Market infrastructure has proved as robust as ever through what is seen as the biggest test of market functioning since the Global Financial Crisis of 2008. The increased activity and volatility triggered by the pandemic has been met with extraordinary resilience, with CCPs successfully managing extreme volumes and market moves in exceptional circumstances, proving their contribution to systemic stability and to fully functioning markets. Against this background, the conference is an opportunity to continue with our ongoing conversation about clearing, to reflect on the lessons learned from the pandemic, including the performance of the broader eco-system that CCPs serve and interact with, and to examine the questions and challenges, old and new, that lie ahead
