Strate’s Head of Risk, Dale Connock, was approached to be part of a series of market workshops in African countries on the CPSS-IOSCO Principles for Financial Market Infrastructures. After having done a workshop for AMEDA (in Dubai in September 2013), he was invited by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to assist them in presenting a workshop on the Principles to regional representatives from Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda, Uganda and Ethiopia, which was held in Kigali, Rwanda.
This has since been followed up with a request from the World Bank to facilitate a workshop for the central bank in Botswana, which has also taken place. Dale will be involved in a third workshop that is due to take place in Zanzibar in the coming weeks, at the request of the IMF.
Should you wish to have a market workshop hosted in your region relating to the CPSS-IOSCO Principles, or other topics relating to the post-trade industry, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
