Symposium on Market Fragmentation in Europe

European equity markets have seen several waves of fragmentation and regulators are now again considering changes to the market structure. Whereas some market participants would like to centralize trading to transparent limit order book markets, other point to the need of institutional investors to trade in alternative venues. This half-day symposium features presentations of the latest academic research on market fragmentation, including effects of MiFID II, with comments by leading industry participants. The aim is to provide a forum for constructive discussion between academics, regulators and industry participants on the road ahead for European financial market structure. The symposium is hosted in collaboration between Stockholm Business School and the Swedish Securities Markets Association.
