We'd like to thank everyone who contributed to the success of the 2017 edition of the Euroclear Collateral Conference held in Brussels on 13 and 14 November.
This year we, once again, broke our attendance record – with almost 800 industry delegates from all corners of the globe making the trip to Brussels to help create the future of our industry through dialogue and collaboration.
We had a rich and diverse agenda which included interactive panels and keynote speeches – including one from Olivier Guersent, the Director General of the Directorate-General for Financial Stability, Financial Services and Capital Markets Union – and featured over 40 leading industry speakers – all of which attracted a great deal of attention and stimulated thoughtful and relevant debate.
The diversity of subject matter addressed during the collateral conference was even broader than it has been in previous years, demonstrating the increasing importance of collateral management, but also the increasing need for industry events to encourage dialogue and bring to light opportunities for collaboration.
Next year promises to be even more interesting.
