The theme for this year's event is "Reimagining Europe's Capital Markets". The development of new technologies and ways of working continues to challenge the status quo in creating exciting new opportunities, changing how we provide value to our customers, generating efficiencies and reducing risks.

OPTIC 2022 will take place in London, with a two-day agenda packed with keynote addresses from regulatory authorities, thought-provoking panels and speeches from Europe's leading financial institutions, and ample networking opportunities for attendees.

The first day will focus on the right here, right now, where our expert guest speakers will discuss the key current opportunities and challenges in technology, operations, and post-trade. In addition, the first-day agenda will include discussions on the latest developments on key regulatory files, including DORA and CSDR.

The second day will focus on longer time-horizon technology trends and opportunities, considering how the capital markets ecosystem might develop in the next three to five years, driven by the digital and ESG agendas.

This event is attended by senior capital market professionals working in operations, post-trade, technology, regulation, and policy.
