Bank of England to hold Open Forum on Fair and Effective Markets

News St Martin – Talking Points

Thursday 8 October 2015

Unique Opportunity to Shape Fair and Effective Markets

The opportunity has arisen following a review undertaken by the UK Treasury, Bank of England and Financial Conduct Authority in order to identify ways of making financial markets more effective. While, at first sight, this topic seems highly technical, these markets have enormous significance in determining commercial behaviour throughout the world at all levels of the global economy.

In view of that, the Bank of England is now looking for ways to take this work forward with broad-based involvement from all areas of society – a process that will formally launch on 11 November, although work is already under way. It is also seeking to globalise the initiative. Nothing of this sort has ever happened in the UK and nothing like it is happening anywhere else in the world.

Public registration is open and the online portal will be available until 23 October, with attendance determined by a ballot.  The debate on social media is already underway (#BoEOpenForum) and live webcasts will be available on the day.
