Real-time access to market data drives trading across asset classes and national borders. Yet regulators still approach issues such as transparency and fragmentation by single asset class and regulatory jurisdiction. Likely result: inefficient fragments of regulation, distortion of market structure and failure to address the market development needs of emerging economies. In RMA’s response to IOSCO’s Consultation Report on Market Structure, we suggest it’s time to focus more positively on connectivity between markets and venues, rather than trying to “solve” fragmentation and transparency issues via 1970s-style consolidated tapes.
