The European Equities Markets - a changing landscape

Since 2009, we have seen the longest bull run in the history of equities markets. Regulatory change, societal transformations, technological developments and investor preferences over this period have created a rapidly changing industry within an unprecedented economic climate. More than ever geopolitics is shaping the industry and how we connect across borders. What has been the impact of MiFID II? Will the cross border landscape change? Are there opportunities within these changes? What role will the Exchanges play in this unfolding story?
