The Opening Keynote Speech at ISLA's 27th Annual Securities Finance and Collateral Management Conference in Lisbon will be given by Ms Gabriela Figueiredo Dias - the Chairperson of Comissão do Mercado de Valores Mobiliários (CMVM), the securities market supervisor in Portugal, since December 2016.

Ms Gabriela Figueiredo Dias has an extensive and intensive international experience with ESMA, IOSCO and OECD, namely on Financial Markets and Corporate Governance affairs, and was recently elected Vice-Chair of the OECD Corporate Governance Committee. She represents CMVM at various international and national fora.

ISLA is delighted to have Ms Figueiredo Dias representing CMVM's point of view on the current political and economic challenges and developments facing the industry.

We are also very pleased to have Katya Adler as the Closing Keynote of the Conference. Katya is the BBC’s Europe Editor and has reported from all over the world, covering elections, wars, and major cultural and political events.

With stories that are engaging, insightful and often entertaining, Katya takes a look at the world, Europe and the life of a foreign and war correspondent. She analyses the culture, politics and economics of a Europe faced with a unique set of challenges, and examines the key players and issues in the UK’s departure from the EU - which will be an important topic at this year's conference.


The broad aim of ISLA's 27th annual conference in Lisbon will be to provide a platform for the industry to debate both the current and future direction of our markets across many important themes. As we see the end of the post crisis regulatory agenda, Lisbon will provide a backdrop for fresh thinking.
