FX Markets Leader series

Event Icon

The FX market is the world’s largest capital market and it’s most significant risk – FX settlement risk – is on the rise and may be reaching levels that threaten global financial stability.

The rise is largely due to an increase in trading of currencies that do not have access to payment-versus-payment (PvP) settlement mechanisms, in particular those from emerging markets. At the same time, the FX community recognizes that it must continue to push for resilience, standardization, ease of access and interoperability across financial market infrastructure solutions.
