FOX Webcast: Deliberate Evolution vs. Mutation in Public Equities Markets - April 28, 2021


Wednesday, Apr 28, 2021 - 10:00am to 11:00am CDT


Please join us on Wednesday, April 28, from 10:00 am to 11:00 am CT, for a live webcast with FOX members and a subject matter expert to discuss recently implemented and contemplated equity and ETF market changes. During this virtual event, attendees will be able to share ideas, ask questions, and find solutions for the months ahead.

A well-intentioned and deliberate approach to adjusting public equity market structure through regulation can result in positive outcomes for investors, but that approach isn’t always what drives change in global equity markets. The media, investor advocacy groups, and legislators often intervene to influence the trajectory, and the outcome can be more of a mutation than an evolutionary process. We will discuss a range of recently implemented and currently contemplated equity and ETF market changes and how these changes have or could affect the way we invest – for better or worse.
