IDX 2014 in Review
7th Annual FIA/FIA Europe International Derivatives Expo a Success!
A record of 1,500 delegates attended IDX 2014, held jointly by FIA Europe and FIA. The two-day program - attended by global regulators, exchange leaders, industry leaders, as well as buy-side participants - attracted lively discussion on a range of issues, including the operational impact of increased movement of collateral in the new cleared environment, tagging algos, client protection, the cost model for the industry, trade reporting, and commodity markets. Keynote panels from exchange leaders, clearinghouse leaders and regulators generated much debate around the issue of cross-border application of regulation. Audio recordings of many of these sessions will be available shortly.
In addition, there were more than 550 attendees at this year's IDX gala dinner, raising more than £125,000 (USD$211,784) for Futures for Kids, a charity organized in 2008 by participants in the futures industry in Europe to support children's charities around the world. Walt Lukken, president and CEO of FIA, took on the kilt-wearing tradition this year and so far has raised £8,143 (USD$13,796) for this cause. Since January, £205,085 (USD$347,470) has been raised for Futures for Kids, bringing the total funds raised since inception to £2,000,000 (USD$3,388,550).
IDX was also a success thanks to our 36 partners and sponsors as well as the 46 exhibitors, featuring products and services supporting the listed derivatives and cleared swaps industry.
