The Australian Securities & Investments Commission is working with the Australian Financial Markets Association and large institutions to ensure that the coronavirus outbreak does not stop financial markets from remaining open. ASIC chairman James Shipton notes that it has a pandemic response plan in place, while ASIC’s executive director of markets Greg Yanco says the economic impact of the virus is uncertain. Shipton says ASIC has set up an internal working group to monitor the potential threat that the coronavirus poses and to work with other regulators.
