Wavelength Podcast Episode 123: An Examination of the SGX-NSE Row; Esma Targets Reporting Platforms

Wei-Shen Wong joins to discuss the brewing battle between the SGX and NSE and Anthony and James look at Esma's shot at reporting platforms.

On the podcast, Wei-Shen Wong, Waters’ Asia editor, joins to discuss the dispute unfolding between the Singapore Exchange (SGX) and India’s National Stock Exchange (NSE) over index licensing.

Before that, though, Anthony and James look at how the European Securities and Markets Authority (Esma) has come down on reporting platforms, saying that the data they make available to the public is often not exactly in line with what the regulator wanted when it rewrote Europe’s trading rulebook.

6:00 What are politicians and market participants saying?


10:30 Wei-Shen joins and begins by laying out the groundwork for how we got to this point, which started with the Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) asking the three main exchanges in India to terminate their existing market data licensing agreements with foreign partners.
16:00 The resolution to this fight might have roots in a case that was settled a few years ago in the United States.
17:30 What happens next?
18:00 Sebi’s decision is viewed by some as a political move and by others as a last resort. Either way, there are concerns all around that its decision will not achieve the desired results.
