The World Federation of Exchanges (WFE), the trade association of 62 publicly regulated stock, futures and options exchanges, has moved its headquarters from Paris to London.
The new WFE London office places the WFE in close proximity to a number of international financial institutions, including many of its member organizations. It is part of an effort to transform the WFE into a more outward looking organization, representing the interests of its member exchanges globally.
"London has long been recognized as one of the most important global financial centers of the world," explains Huseyin Erkan, CEO of WFE. "Now that the WFE is officially headquartered here, we look forward to increased interaction with the key participants in our industry; both those located in the City, and those who visit on business."
