The Promise of Market Reform - Reflections One Year Later
Publication Date: May 23, 2018

In May 2017, Nasdaq laid out a blueprint for revitalizing the U.S. capital markets with the objective of creating more robust, efficient and transparent markets and significant progress has been made on many of the proposed reforms. Nasdaq's President, Nelson Griggs, recently provided an update on that progress, along with the work Nasdaq continues to do with its partners, to build capital markets that work better for the investing public and entrepreneurs. In addition, the Subcommittee on Capital Markets, Securities, and Investment of the House Financial Services Committee held a hearing on May 23rd to examine potential legislation aimed at eliminating regulatory hurdles that harm the ability of "Main Street" businesses, early-stage companies, smaller companies and emerging growth companies to access capital, innovate, grow and create jobs. Edward Knight, Nasdaq's Executive Vice President and Global Chief Legal and Policy Officer, testified at this hearing.
