UK/US - Slashing red tape could cut schemes' transatlantic equities trading costs by up to 60%, the International Securities Market Association claims.
The ISMA and the New York-based research centre, the Council on Foreign Relations, believe that unnecessary regulation inflates trading costs for investors on both sides of the Atlantic.
They claim trading costs can be cut by axing all regulatory barriers to transatlantic trading which have “no useful role” in protecting investors and allowing schemes on one side of the Atlantic direct access to an exchange on the other.
