Z/Yen has led several industry initiatives from the 1996 launch of Taskforce 2000, the industry response to the millennium bug, to ongoing investment banking global operations costs benchmarks (European securities, US securities, global derivatives processing, global foreign exchange & money markets, operational performance, and clearance & settlement). Working with the Universities Superannuation Scheme and Gresham College Z/Yen created the Farsight Award for long-term investment research. Z/Yen created and supports the $15M London Accord, the world’s leading ‘open source’ research cooperative into climate change economics. Z/Yen leads the Long Finance Initiative to answer the question “when would we know our financial system is working?”. Z/Yen created and runs the Global Financial Centres Index and is incorporated into Long Finance’s Financial Centre Futures work.
