The World Federation of Exchanges' Global Meeting on Sustainability Chaired by TMX Group

Navigating the transition together: developing pathways to sustainability

The WFE is convening its members and stakeholders to discuss the key ESG issues within the exchange and market infrastructure space. Exchanges sit at the core of the financial market, playing a vital role in creating the vehicles for capital to be deployed into sustainable development. Join us at our member in Toronto, TMX Group, for a range of panels, keynote speeches and fireside chats from the industry leaders in this space as we discuss how the industry will meet the challenges of financing the green transition.


About the WFE

Established in 1961, the WFE is the global industry association for exchanges and clearing houses. Headquartered in London, it represents over 250 market infrastructure providers, including standalone CCPs that are not part of exchange groups. Of our members, 36% are in Asia-Pacific, 43% in EMEA and 21% in the Americas. WFE’s 87 member CCPs and clearing services collectively ensure that risk takers post some $1.3 trillion (equivalent) of resources to back their positions, in the form of initial margin and default fund requirements. The exchanges covered by WFE data are home to over 55,000 listed companies, and the market capitalization of these entities is over $111 trillion; around $124 trillion (EOB) in trading annually passes through WFE members (at end 2023).

The WFE is the definitive source for exchange-traded statistics and publishes over 350 market data indicators. Its free statistics database stretches back more than 40 years and provides information and insight into developments on global exchanges. The WFE works with standard-setters, policy makers, regulators and government organisations around the world to support and promote the development of fair, transparent, stable and efficient markets. The WFE shares regulatory authorities’ goals of ensuring the safety and soundness of the global financial system.

With extensive experience of developing and enforcing high standards of conduct, the WFE and its members support an orderly, secure, fair and transparent environment for investors; for companies that raise capital; and for all who deal with financial risk. We seek outcomes that maximise the common good, consumer confidence and economic growth. And we engage with policy makers and regulators in an open, collaborative way, reflecting the central, public role that exchanges and CCPs play in a globally integrated financial system.
