Learn Market Structure from the experts that the US Congress and Regulators turn to.


KOR not only understands the complexities of US markets, but we understand how we got here and where we're going. Congress and Regulators regularly ask us to testify on critical market structure issues. Leverage our expertise to understand modern electronic markets and the incredible technological and regulatory complexity that drives them.

KOR Group is available for a variety of half-day and full-day workshops / seminars on many different topics, including:

  • Market structure history and current developments
  • Direct market access and order routing best practices
  • Transaction Cost Analysis and performance attribution / analysis
  • Regulatory landscape, current proposals and how these events impact your business

These workshops are valuable for the buy-side to understand market structure developments, for regulators looking for practitioners' perspectives, for attorneys preparing capital markets litigation or defense, and for sell-side firms looking to sponsor buy-side educational events or who want to train traders and market structure analysts.
