After FIA Boca 2020 was cancelled because of the Coronavirus, JLN found some alternative ways to put together the video interviews we had scheduled. In this one, with Walt Lukken, we spoke via phone with Walt and the FIA taped their side of the interview in his office. Lukken talked about the FIA’s decision to cancel the conference and the impact of the Coronavirus on the futures and options industry. He also discussed the results of the recent FIA survey in conjunction with Greenwich Associates and how the FIA is addressing market concerns. He also spoke about FIA Tech’s response to the attack on its systems by a hacker and how it is using the incident as a teaching tool, FIA’s efforts around diversity in the workplace, and regulation of foreign CCPs.
