Over the past couple of years, there have been a lot of changes within the foreign exchange (forex) space, particularly in terms of regulation. Since the implementation of ESMA’s product intervention measures, offshore jurisdictions have been booming as traders seek warmer waters and more favorable trading conditions.
However, following this boom, local regulators from these island nations are focusing more on their FX and CFD industries and have been increasingly adopting new regulation, with the most recent change coming out of The Bahamas. So, what will the future be for offshore jurisdictions, and what will their role be within the FX space going forward?
This Tuesday, June 30th at 15:00 CET (13:00 GMT), Finance Magnates will be speaking with three leaders within this space – Jim Manczak, Tal Itzhak Ron, Graeme Watkins, to discuss the future of offshore jurisdictions, the challenges they face and more.

Industry experts weigh in on offshore jurisdictions
To discuss this topic, Finance Magnates has handpicked the panelists to discuss the broad topic of offshore jurisdictions and their role within the FX and CFD space. A range of topics will be discussed – regulation, banking, the limitations of offshore countries, which regions are hot, and which are not.
Two of our speakers will be discussing the issue from their perspective of providing regulation and licensing services to brokerages, whereas the final panelist, who is the CEO of a broker with operations in an offshore jurisdiction, will give insight from a broker’s side of things.
