THE WORLD FEDERATION OF EXCHANGES LAUNCHES NEW WEBSITE & MEMBERS’ PORTAL

London, Tuesday 20 November 2018 – The World Federation of Exchanges ("WFE"), the global industry group for exchanges and CCPs, has launched a new website and members’ portal as part of its ongoing transformation programme, using digital communications as a key element of its engagement with industry stakeholders and its membership base.

 

The new website, designed and built by Cambridge-based creative agency Somersault, showcases the global research, regulatory affairs, events and education work of the WFE in an easy-to-find navigation style, complemented by thoughtful imagery. In addition, access to the WFE’s statistics database - a free resource of exchange-traded statistics that stretches back more than 40 years - has been made simpler, following feedback from world-wide users of the federation’s data. The WFE publishes over 350 market data indicators, ranging from statistics on exchange traded products such as equities, derivatives and ETFs to granular data on IPOs, and the WFE’s Median Simple Spread liquidity indicator. This data has been used by a wide range of stakeholders, from regulators, government officials, NGOs, development agencies, the media, academics and the industry itself, for many decades. To access the WFE’s market-leading, free statistics database, simply click here to create an account.

 

The WFE’s members’ portal has also enjoyed a redesign and refresh. The portal is a valuable benefit that gives access to a range of member-only content. This ranges from additional access to other sets of data and statistics; documentation on the WFE’s 10 Working Groups and five Committees, as well as its General Assembly; special publications and reports by the WFE; and a virtual library of content on topics such as Brexit, Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) and FinTech.

 

The relaunch of the WFE website and members’ portal comes a few weeks after the relaunch of the WFE’s monthly magazine, Focus. Focus is a fully online publication, with thought-provoking contributions from the WFE, its member exchanges and CCPs, as well as a selection of relevant insight articles from external stakeholders on developments affecting the market structure industry. Its interactive nature allows readers to share and engage with content across all devices, and its latest relaunch has moved the magazine forward both in terms of design and navigation.

 

Nandini Sukumar, CEO, WFE said: “The WFE’s strategic communications agenda is a key element of the positioning work we do. These digital platforms form a critical component of that communications work, therefore we are delighted to launch three modern, highly functional sites. Each one has an important role to play in how we interact with our stakeholders, and how our stakeholders interact with us. It is also vital - as the voice of the global exchange and CCP industry, impacted by rapidly changing technology - that we lead the sector in terms of progressive digital communications, and these platforms help to deliver just that.”
