The WFE's 59th General Assembly & Annual Meeting
The General Assembly is the ultimate decision-making body of the World Federation of Exchanges (WFE), responsible for approving policies, including admission and suspension of membership, annual budgets, and election of WFE officers. CEOs and other representatives of member exchanges worldwide attend the annual General Assembly.
The Annual Meeting is an invitation-only event, where leaders of global exchanges, regulatory authorities, industry experts from academia and the media gather together for in-depth discussion on major issues surrounding the exchange industry.
Since its foundation, the WFE has organised committees, meetings, general assemblies, conferences, and workshops for its members to transfer knowledge and share expertise. As an industry trade organisation, the WFE has discussed virtually every aspect of the capital market: the technical, the commercial, the legal and the economic. In the past four decades we have published studies and reports on issues such as CCP recovery & resolution, business continuity, self-regulation, cross border trading, HFT, sustainability, SMEs and cyber security.
