    “Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself,” Rumi wrote. As the world and the global financial system confronts unprecedented change on multiple fronts - regulatory, political, social, generational and economic - what must exchanges & CCPs do to prepare for the future? What does the world require of the industry today and what does it require of us in five years? What can we change and what must the industry live with to ensure we remain relevant and close to our customers and stakeholders?
