The American Action Forum will host an event to examine how market structure in the United States has changed over the past ten years and where we go from here. The SEC is expected to make a final decision next month on whether to approve IEX as an exchange. While many have framed this debate as IEX vs high frequency traders, our panel of experts will examine the impact on investors and the equity markets.

From Reg NMS to the Flash Boys’ IEX proposed exchange, join us as market experts weigh in on what the future of equity markets might look like and the effects on investors. The event will be held on May 18 at 12 p.m. at 1747 Pennsylvania Ave NW, 5th Floor.
