The economic impact of the Covid-19 pandemic has introduced extraordinary volatility in global financial markets. In an environment where uncertainty makes it unusually hard to price assets and for market-makers to operate, exchanges are providing the only way to establish consensus on these valuations in real time.
Financial markets provide businesses with crucial funding and risk management products and services. Investors rely on markets for adequately priced assets and managing portfolio risk. The transparent price formation process that happens on exchanges provides essential market information to investors, asset managers and economic decision-makers alike.
Even as the current coronavirus outbreak causes significant operational pressure on market infrastructures, these functions remain critically important. It is essential that financial markets remain open and able to perform their role - providing investors with liquidity, facilitating price discovery, and allowing for risk transfer and the transmission of monetary policy.
Market infrastructures around the world recognise their responsibility not only to issuers and market participants, but to the economies they serve and society at large.
