Defining the Next Era: Takeaways on Key Issues from STA’s 90th Annual Market Structure Conference

By Ryan Kwiatkowski, StoneX

STA Chair

STA’s 90th Annual Market Structure Conference is officially in the books! On behalf of our staff and board of governors, we’d like to extend our heartfelt thanks to all attendees, speakers and sponsors. It wouldn’t have been possible without you.

When we selected our conference theme for this year – The Next Era – we did so in hopes that the panels and firesides on the agenda would set the tone for a host of market structure and regulatory priorities for 2024 and beyond. Put simply, they did not disappoint. No matter how they tuned in – in-person or virtually – attendees gained a wealth of insight into some of the biggest issues facing financial services today, with senior leaders from buy- and sell-side firms, exchanges, technology vendors and government sharing their perspectives, concerns and visions for the future of the industry.

Couldn’t make it to the conference? Looking for a quick rundown of the topics discussed? We’ve got you covered. Read on for a rundown of 8 expert takeaways on key issues that were covered in this year’s program. We hope you’ll come away with a better understanding of what it will take to find success in this next era – and beyond.
