Chairman's opening remarks

Göran Fors, Deputy Head of Investor Services, SEB

MARKET KEYNOTE: End-of-year report card: Post trade has made big strides but could do better!

As much as us operations folks love our details, let’s see Alan Cameron kick off the conference with some proper big-picture reflections:

• Always remember that necessity is the mother of invention

• It’s time to put asset servicing centre stage

• Settlements – you need to get a sense of direction

Alan Cameron, Head of Client Line Advisory, BNP Paribas Securities Services

PANEL: Finland’s post trade – the bird’s view

Let’s get a current overview of the Finnish post-trade market trends and the forces that will shape it through 2023.
• Will joining T2S make a difference for the market – and has the delay made a difference?
• Where will we see digital assets going?
• How can we lower costs in the post-trade area?
• What are the most important developments, after T2S and a new tax regime?

Moderator: Göran Fors, Deputy Head of Investor Services, SEB

FIRESIDE CHAT: Getting on top of the data: the setup, the challenge, the vision

Paula Avraamides, Client Executive, Nordics, BNY Mellon

Duncan Cooper, Head of OMNI Digital Services, EMEA and APAC, BNY Mellon

PANEL: The green and the lake. Developing new roles for CSDs in coordinating ESG data from issuers

So far, post trade infrastructures have played a humble role in the budding sustainability transition. Yet, as reporting requirements stack up both for issuers and investors, could central securities depositories play a supportive role as data intermediaries?

Moderator:  Alan Goodrich, Regional Sales Manager - Benelux, Nordics, Baltics & SEE, ERI BANCAIRE

Panellists:

Paul Symons, Chief Sustainability Officer, Euroclear

Camille Leca, Group Head of ESG, Euronext

KEYNOTE: The EMIR refit - High time to act

Carsten Kunkel, Head of Regulatory Center of Excellence, Director, SimCorp

PANEL: Disciplined enough? How the CSDR settlement regime is turning out in Finland

Across Europe, settlement failure rates have paradoxically gone up rather than down since the failure penalties under CSDR came into action last winter. Since missing securities are the most common reason for failure, many actors have begun to discuss what are the invisible root causes that they are not in place in time to settle. We take a look at how the settlement improvement efforts are progressing in Finland, and how we can expect to see the field develop.

KEYNOTE: Digital assets: The path to a regulated playing field

The tech folks show little doubt that DLT-based securities solutions will give us more efficient systems and open new markets. So far, however, institutional investors are among those who stay on the sideline until there is stable-enough regulation. So what will it look like, and how do we get there?

Hannah Meakin, Partner, Norton Rose Fulbright LLP

FIRESIDE CHAT: Connecting the blocks – BNY Mellon on its prize-winning hack to make digital asset platforms interoperable with each other and with “TradFi”

As Global Head of Digital Assets Technology with BNY Mellon, Abhay Navale led the “hackathon” team that came to win Swift’s recent challenge on digital-asset interoperability. Its solution was produced against a background of financial firms seeking faster transactions at lower cost, and asset managers who will require legal certainty that their asset purchases are final and irrevocable. As technology continues to evolve, alongside the rise of digital currencies, and 24/7 instant commerce, the ability to solve the global interoperability puzzle for digital assets becomes increasingly difficult. Learn from Abhay how BNY Mellon works to develop a seamless client experience for digital and traditional assets.

FIRESIDE CHAT: How public asset owners are evolving

Interviews with leaders from 50 public asset owner institutions, holding 9 trillion dollars, went into a recent study by BNY Mellon, tells EMEA COO Christine Mikolajuk. The report reveals that they are seeking to be bolder and more creative in their search for yield, and that they are ready to challenge and change every element of their operations. More than half of the covered institutions are already underway with operational transformations. In this session, learn how and why.

KEYNOTE: How asset managers are taking on digital assets

With many question marks remaining, asset management institutions have been reluctant to embrace the digital-assets world. Nevertheless, some do – and Thomas Brand is ready to give us the overview of how. Get updated on the trends in motion and learn examples from the US and Western Europe as well as from the Nordic/Baltic region.

Thomas Brand, Head of Institutional  Sales & Research, Coinmotion

KEYNOTE: The EU sustainability taxonomy and how it will offer retail investors better transparency

MARKET RESEARCH: The 2021 meme stock storm – and the astonishing operational factors that opened for it

While traditional institutions struggle to onboard any client within a day, American “super broker” pioneer Robinhood ran account openings in the hundreds of thousands – per day – through the exciting days of 28 and 29 January 2021. Kickback payments for the order flow from Robinhood, from market makers including Citadel and Morgan Stanley, enabled Robinhood to offer its retail clients stock trading at zero commission, in a “gamified” environment. Hear the story of how its practices suddenly came to challenge the market infrastructures and their risk management.

Vinod Jain, Senior Analyst, Capital Markets, Aite-Novarica Group

PANEL: The “UTI” and its promise

There is an industry-standard “unique transaction identifier” that can help provide firms with much needed settlement transparency. As seller, buyer and their settlement parties use the same reference, settling their instructions should be much easier. Let’s take a look at how it is implemented, and how it could contribute to settlement efficiency.
