The merged association will change its name to the International Capital Market Association (ICMA) and will have its headquarters in Zurich. It will have an operating entity in London and will continue to own and operate TRAX, ISMA’s trade matching and reporting system. The merger, which is subject to approval by the member firms of each association, due diligence, and all necessary regulatory approvals, is expected to be completed by early July 2005.
