On Thursday, May 9, and Friday, May 10, 2019, the SEC, Center for Financial Services at Lehigh University, Center for Financial Policy at the Robert H. Smith School of Business, and CFA Institute jointly hosted the Sixth Annual Conference on Financial Market Regulation (CFMR) at the SEC Headquarters in Washington, DC.

The CFMR brought together participants from academia, industry, government, and the SEC for an exchange of views on topics of relevance to the Commission.

This year's presenters and discussants tackled thought-provoking topics including product differentiation as a predictor of fraud, short selling and adverse selection, tweets to motivate investors, order routing to high frequency traders and ATSs, effects of a shock to angel finance, corporate disclosure, post-crisis liquidity regulation, risk retention rules, fiduciary duty and financial advice, and alternative pricing rules.

The CFMR lunch keynote address was given by Commissioner Hester Peirce. In addition, there was a SEC panel on economic analysis in enforcement cases.

To view this year's presented papers, check out the Sixth CFMR eJournal, which is now available to all SSRN subscribers at no charge. The CFMR eJournal contains abstracts of the conference papers with links to the full text in the SSRN eLibrary.
