Financial Markets Conference - Financial Market Reforms: Taking Stock - May 12–14, 2008

The Atlanta Fed's 2008 Financial Markets Conference will examine the long-term impact of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 on improving corporate governance and how Reg FD and reforms to the Wall Street research machine have leveled the playing field for institutional and individual investors. The program also explores two driving forces that could further reshape the financial landscape: the changing role of activist investors and their influence on corporate governance and operations and the continued internationalization of exchanges that could lead to a single 24/7 marketplace.
