How will the Israeli trading industry react to the licensing process which is expected to be concluded in the coming months, and what are the main challenges that brokers are facing during the interim period? At the Finance Magnates TLV Conference, noted industry figures will try to answer these dramatic questions.
Two key speakers who have already secured their participation in this panel are Mr Yossi Beinart, CEO of the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange and veteran of the trading industry, and Mr. Tzah Druker, the Head of the Israeli Trading Arena Association. These individuals will bring the industry’s point of view to the discussion.
Finance Magnates has been continually covering the licensing process with exclusive stories, for example the one posted last week that shed light on some aspects of the ongoing discussions between the trading industry and the Israeli Securities Authority (ISA). Of the 21 Israeli brokers who submitted to the ISA for a license on May 2015, about 15 are left in the race, while others have redrawn their requests.
Mr. Beinart, a senior executive in the American and European financial markets for over two decades, was brought back home to be the head of the local stock exchange in January 2014. Between 2008 and 2013 he was President and CEO of NADEX (The North American Derivatives Exchange). Between 2005 and 2007 he was Director of Technology at the IG Group (UK) and Portero, Inc. (US), where he also served as a member of the executive committee. During the nineties he served as Managing Director and Chief Information Officer of Investment Technology Group Inc.
Finance Magnates is proud to present its inaugural TLV Conference, to be held on the 29th of June. Apart from the invaluable networking opportunities, the agenda is packed with panels, masterclasses and keynote speeches geared towards the subject of fintech. Industry leaders will be discussing subjects such as marketing automation, cybersecurity, financial regulation and cryptocurrencies, with a focus on the booming Israeli fintech scene. In keeping with this, there will also be a fintech spotlight session in which a lineup of firms will each have four minutes to pitch their exciting products, culminating in an award presented to the most promising.
