About the conference

AFME’s 14th Annual European Post Trade Virtual Conference will take place on the 18th & 19th October 2021.

Now in its fourteenth year, the conference is the leading event for the European clearing and settlement industry, and attracts over 250 senior market professionals representing European buy and sell side organisations, regulators, policymakers, central banks and industry service providers.

The theme for this year’s conference is ‘The Journey from Analogue to Digital’. Technological advancement in post trade has been a case of evolution not revolution, and has competed with regulatory compliance projects for budget and attention. Now, the emergence of new types of assets, the development of distributed ledgers and other new technologies, and the catalyst of increased remote working, have combined to push the digital agenda to a top priority for market participants and regulators.

Our expert speakers will discuss some of the key questions that will shape the future of the industry, including what the post trade environment looks like for new digital assets, and how new technologies can transform existing processes to generate efficiency gains. The conference will also feature a panel discussion on the positives and negatives of a shortened T+1 settlement cycle which is being considered in the US. Finally, you will hear from leading industry experts on one of the key upcoming regulatory milestones – CSDR Settlement Discipline.
