New York, NY (PRWEB) April 07, 2014
The contentious market structure debate continues to enthrall the financial services industry. Despite many differences of opinions, a broad cross-section of professionals agree that fundamental reforms for increasing transparency and reducing market volatility are critically needed. KOR Group LLC’s Christopher Nagy and David Lauer have been at the center of this debate for years and have launched Healthy Markets to bring the public and key financial services firms together to agree on a core set of reforms and principles to effectively lobby for market changes that will benefit U.S. equity markets.
Healthy Markets is a coalition of like-minded financial services firms, backed by the public’s support, that can agree on general guiding principles and specific remedies – and challenge powerful, entrenched broker interests. Healthy Markets will accomplish this with a strong lobbying presence in Washington D.C. Led by Nagy and Lauer, both registered lobbyists who have testified before Congress numerous times on market structure, Healthy Markets is an independent resource for bringing change to the market today.
Read Lauer’s recent blog, “Wall Street’s Problem: Is the Stock Market Rigged?”
“Change is coming fast and furiously,” said Nagy. “The SEC will be examining market structure issues this year and running pilot projects to evaluate significant changes. It is critical that subject-matter experts, independent of any particular firm or market segment, lead the charge to guide the SEC to make effective changes. That is why we founded Healthy Markets.”
“Healthy Market’s focus is on transparency and reducing conflicts of interest and market volatility,” said Lauer. “The world of computerized trading is here to stay, but we can do a much better job of putting rules in place to make it fair and trustworthy again.”
