Virtual General Assembly

AFM's 2020 General Assembly and Annual Conference took place on September 11. Read our summary!

Formal proceedings opened with annual reports and board elections. Global particpants from commodity and derivatives markets, clearing houses, tech suppliers, industry associations and experts made up the panels and audience of the Annual Conference. Subjects discussed included winners and losers since Covid changed the world, thoughts for the next 2 quarters, physical vs financial vs hybrid products, remote working pros & cons and the lessons learnt. It was informative, insightful and inconclusive - the agreement was to disagree, to be mindful that after the hiatus things will be different but also to come together and drive towards common goals. Nothing can ever be taken for granted again. The product debate was the highlight and could have run into the night. The panel have agreed and we will reconvene in late October to dig deeper. So a very big thank you to everyone who was involved in designing, delivering and participating.
