The Regulation of Cross-Border Trading
Thursday, June 27, 2013, at 6:00 PM
There is no charge for this program.

Please RSVP by emailing Antonina D'Andrea at

The rise of electronic trading has broadened the reach of our securities markets internationally. Yet, the nuts and bolts of this technology remain a mystery to many and the regulatory implications remain unclear. The NYC Bar Association's Committee on Foreign and Comparative Law is pleased to host a discussion by Professors Bernard S. Donefer of Baruch College (CUNY) and Eric Pan, Associate Director of the Office of International Affairs of the Securities and Exchange Commission on the history and uses of electronic trading (including algorithmic trading and "dark pools") and the regulatory responses thereto (including the SEC's recent proposal with respect to security-based swaps).

Prof. Bernard S. Donefer enjoyed a 35-year career in the international financial services industry, working with banks, securities firms and exchanges in the US, Europe and Asia. He now is Distinguished Lecturer with the Department of Statistics and Computer Information Systems of Baruch College and Adjunct Associate Professor at the NYU Stern Graduate Business School. He has written and lectured widely on the structure of the U.S. equities markets and on electronic trading systems, the strategies they enable and the business models they support.

Prof. Eric J. Pan was appointed Associate Director of the Office of International Affairs of the SEC in December 2011. He previously was Associate Professor of Law and Director of the Heyman Center on Corporate Governance of the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law in New York. His published work includes research and fundamental policy discussions in international financial regulation.
