CEO Letter-July 2023

By: Nandini Sukumar, CEO, The WFE Jul 2023

Welcome to the July issue of Focus.

This month we are excited to announce our Market Infrastructure Certificate programme, the first educational qualification for our industry.

This unique programme will help the next generation of financial services leaders worldwide understand the functioning and role of the organisations that underpin public markets.

Elsewhere in Focus this month, Artem Grechishnikov, senior QA project manager of Exactpro, explains the issues that must be addressed when considering moving operations to a cloud infrastructure.

Phil Mackintosh, chief economist and senior vice president of Nasdaq, warns us of the deep negative impacts that financial transaction taxes can have on a a country's market liquidity and international competitiveness.

And a reminder to save the date for our General Assembly & Annual Meeting 2023. This year, the Bermuda Stock Exchange hosts us from Sept. 19-21, the first time the meeting will be held on the island nation. As always, our General Assembly & Annual Meeting gathers leaders of our industry and their stakeholders globally, making for a very special meeting and rich discussions.

See you next month for more.

Nandini Sukumar
Chief Executive Officer
