Forty years ago, a few dozen legal and compliance professionals at futures commission merchants gathered together in Washington, DC, for the first official FIA Law & Compliance Division conference to discuss the issues of the day. In 1979, these professionals were grappling with a new regulator, a new regulatory environment and understanding how newly adopted and proposed regulations would affect commodities futures contracts.
Today, this annual conference attracts nearly 900 legal and compliance professionals representing the entire cleared derivatives ecosystem. Our focus remains the same – providing a forum to learn and discuss the legal and regulatory issues impacting the derivatives industry.
