    As the novel coronavirus pandemic swept across the globe, entrepreneurs and founders found themselves in an unprecedented situation. The longest bull market on record suddenly slipped away, and thousands of jobs were lost as social distancing measures forced businesses to reevaluate their strategy and operations. This week, former Cisco Chairman and CEO John Chambers, who led the company through the dot-com bubble and the financial crisis, shared his playbook on leading through a crisis, emphasizing the importance of communication and culture.

    Chambers detailed the lessons he has learned from the successes and failures throughout his extensive career in a new Nasdaq Entrepreneurial Center town hall, hosted by Jeff Thomas, senior vice president and head of Western U.S. Listings and Capital Markets at Nasdaq. Now, as founder and CEO of the purpose-driven venture firm JC2 Ventures, Chambers is using his expertise to help disruptive...

  • How will Reg NMS II impact the markets? Nasdaq Chief Economist @phil_mackintosh explains: Link #MarketMakers
    Nasdaq Thu 28 May 2020 21:18

    The SEC’s new NMS II proposals seem to lack an overarching philosophy of how markets work best.

    On the one hand, they want to reduce duplicative costs and create a more “free market” solution to data distribution that speeds up the Best Bid and Offer (BBO).

    On the other hand, they want to increase government controls over even more market data. Something that will, ironically, slow the Securities Information Processors (SIPs) back down and duplicate fixed costs.

    It also goes against the current view that the SIP should only be for data the industry is mandated to buy. But instead of expanding the regulated data to protect investors more, the new rules reduce many of the protections investors currently get from lit quotes.

    Today’s Big Picture

    In the last 24 hours, investors have been watching the latest escalation between the US and China after China’s parliament passed the controversial national security bill for Hong Kong and blocked a Trump administration effort for a United Nations Security Council meeting on China’s security bill. The passage of that bill into law raises concerns over Hong Kong’s future as a financial center, runs the risk of sparking even more protests, and could lead to companies leaving Hong Kong. 

    Yesterday, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told Congress that Hong Kong was no longer autonomous from China, raising questions over its favorable trade status with the US. Last night, the US House of Representatives authorized sanctions against Chinese officials for human rights abuses against Muslim minorities, which, having been passed by the Senate, now heads to President Donald Trump, who hasn’t said whether he would sign it...

    With the country turning to corporate America to lead recovery and create lasting change, businesses should be planning for a new, stronger future, according to Nelson Griggs, president of Nasdaq Stock Exchange.

    “We’re challenging ourselves to think differently,” Griggs said during Survey Monkey’s 3rd annual Curiosity Conference.

    New research by SurveyMonkey found that 75% of people believe a CEO should take the lead on change rather than the government. During the virtual conference, Griggs and other prominent business leaders, including ESPN President Jimmy Pitaro, UpWork CEO Hayden Brown and Gainsight CEO Nick Mehta, shared how they have led through the pandemic – especially how they have transformed feedback into action.

    Griggs noted that Nasdaq had relatively early insight into the pandemic due to its office presence in Hong Kong. The company moved quickly, implementing split teams globally in early March,...

    Nasdaq Wed 27 May 2020 18:01

    The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has adopted amendments that modify certain financial disclosure requirements about acquisitions and dispositions of businesses. 

    Among other things, the amendments will simplify the disclosure framework for issuers. Specifically, under the proposals, the audited financial statements required to be disclosed for an acquired business will be reduced from three years to two years. The amendments also will permit issuers to prepare financial statements of acquired businesses in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board (“IFRS-IASB”) without reconciliation to U.S. generally accepted accounting principles in certain circumstances.

    Some of the amendments also may benefit companies seeking to launch an initial public offering (IPO). Specifically, the amendments allow a company filing an initial...

    Nasdaq Wed 27 May 2020 16:31

    Simply put, the SEC’s proposed changes to the National Market System introduce risk to the U.S. equities market that is already the envy of the world.

    With all the debate about equity market structure, including market data, one might think our markets are a mess. That couldn’t be further from the truth. The performance and quality of the U.S. equity markets are exemplary and have steadily improved over the years – to investors’ benefit. Bid-ask spreads are tighter; stock prices are more efficient; execution speeds are faster; execution quality is up; trading costs are down; and, surveillance is more sophisticated. As an exclamation point, the equity markets have functioned remarkably well during the historical volumes, volatility, and stresses of the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Given the current market conditions, now is not the time to introduce unnecessary risk to U.S. markets in what the SEC describes as a “Market Data Infrastructure” proposal. We must take the...

    Today’s Big Picture

    Asian markets traded today on a mixed note while European equities moved higher, fueled by optimism over economic re-openings and speculation that the European Union will announce a stimulus package worth as much as €750 billion($823 billion). European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen is expected to announce the detailed plan, which is part of the effort to lift the EU out of a pandemic led recession. That reopening optimism has spilled over to the US equity markets, overcoming reports that the US is developing a “strong response” to China’s planned national security legislation for Hong Kong, which is expected to be unveiled before the end of the week. 

    US futures point to a positive market open that would continue the recent rally in US equities. In our view, the market has been thirsty for positive data on the economic, corporate,...
