A Hundred Years of the Modern Foreign Exchange Market in London


Meeting Code: 

This event, originally due to take place on 27 March at the Bank of England, is being rescheduled to later this year. We will be in touch in due course with the new date and hope you will still be available to attend. If you have not yet registered but would like to be notified once a date is finalised please register your interest.

The modern foreign exchange market as we would recognise it today first emerged in London in 1919 when forward contracts started to be continuously traded.

This one-day workshop reflects on the evolution of this market over the last hundred years with contributions from leading economists, historians and practitioners on such topics as the international role of sterling and London market, the role of the Bank of England, currency market efficiency and predictability, and developments in market microstructure and in fintech in the context of foreign exchange.
