Distinguished Speaker Series: Ronan Ryan (Ended)
President of IEX Group, Inc.
Ronan Ryan, president & co-founder of the Investors Exchange (IEX) tells the story of how he and his co-founders uncovered flaws in the stock market, and decided to build a stock exchange to level the playing field. Ryan and his team’s pursuit of a fairer stock market caught the attention of author, Michael Lewis- who chronicled the genesis of IEX in his bestselling book, "Flash Boys", bringing global media attention to the company and its founders. Ryan will also recount IEX’s ferocious battle with incumbents to become a stock exchange, and discuss what lies ahead as they just passed their year anniversary as a national stock exchange and hope to launch their listings business later this month.
