Regulators, market-makers and investors are acutely aware that liquidity risk is undergoing fundamental change, due to stricter regulation and evolving market expectations. Signs are evident, such as the positive impact of E-trading being countered by the declining role of traditional Street liquidity providers. In the fixed income markets, even in today’s benign conditions, disparity is showing between high demand and low supply of liquidity, forcing issuers to accept higher funding costs to cover investor illiquidity risk. Opinions differ widely as to the impact of central clearing and collateralization of OTC derivatives when liquidity stress conditions occur. Even in the US Treasury market, transparency has never been higher but there are concerns about a regime shift where price-insensitive buyers such as the Fed withdraw their support just at a time when traditional market maker appetite is reduced. 

This ground-breaking event brings together nationally-renowned experts from the regulatory, academic, market maker and investor communities, to debate these issues and share their views on the changing liquidity landscape.
