What we do

The WFE is a central reference point for the securities industry, and for exchanges themselves. We offer member guidance in their business strategies, and in the improvement and harmonization of their management practices.

To meet the goals of the WFE mission, we focus on the following areas:

  • We post over 10 years of market statistics, and business news in our monthly newsletter, Focus. Our Annual Reports and notes from public meetings are available online. We report business management surveys, and thematic studies.

  • We hold public meetings (topical workshops, conferences…) and run private committees (to transfer know-how and share expertise)

  • We sponsor research (such as Securities Lending Report...)

  • We provide professional relations with various expert bodies

  • We promote standards for generally accepted principles of securities business conduct (e.g corporate governance )
