Larry Thompson - an Interview with Handelsblatt News

The Increasing Role of Market Infrastructures

Larry Thompson, DTCC General Counsel, and Chairman of the Board of DTCC Deriv/SERV LLC, is interviewed by Handelsblatt at the Banken im Umbruch conference in Frankfurt. Market infrastructures have an increasingly critical role in reducing cost and managing risk—including systemic risk—across financial markets globally. While infrastructures have become fundamental in enabling the reforms set out by the Group of 20, little is widely known about the role, and responsibilities, that market infrastructures such as DTCC play in helping ensure a seamless flow of capital, delivering services based on scale and improving transparency. It is essential that market infrastructures, in coordination with global supervisors, effectively implement the tools designed to identify and mitigate systemic risk and support the banking system.
