TRADING SITES

INTERCORPEX IS LED BY THE ADMINISTRATOR-GENERAL WHO IS BASED OUT OF THE HEADQUARTERS BUILDING IN NEW YORK CITY. HE IS RESPONSIBLE FOR MANAGING THE DAY-TO-DAY OPERATIONS OF THE EXCHANGE ON A GLOBAL LEVEL AND IMPLEMENTING POLICIES ENACTED BY THE REGENTS. SINCE THE CHARTER, THE INFLUENCE AND POWER OF THE ADMINISTRATOR-GENERAL HAS STEADILY INCREASED. THE POSITION NOW WIELDS MORE POWER THAT THE REGENTS DO AND NOW IS RESPONSIBLE FOR MORE OF THE STRATEGIC DECISION-MAKING. THE POSITION IS A LIFETIME APPOINTMENT, ALTHOUGH MOST CHOSE TO RETIRE AND ACCEPT AN APPOINTMENT AS A PATRICIAN OR ARE OUSTED FROM CONTROL PRIOR TO THEIR DEATHS.

 

THE REGENTS ARE A BODY THAT ACTS MUCH LIKE A CORPORATE BOARD OF DIRECTORS. THE RESPONSIBILITIES OF EACH INDIVIDUAL REGENT VARY, BUT MOST ARE ASSIGNED TO OVERSEE THE CORPORATIONS IN A SPECIFIC GEOGRAPHIC AREA. REGENTS CHOOSE THE ADMINISTRATOR-GENERAL, AND ALTHOUGH NOT AN OFFICIAL POLICY, TYPICALLY CHOSE MEMBERS OF THEIR RANKS TO ASCEND INTO THAT POSITION.

 

PROCONSULS ARE LIAISONS BETWEEN THE EXCHANGE AND CORPORATIONS. THEY ARE CONSULTED PRIOR TO THE ADOPTION OF SPECIFIC POLICIES TO GAUGE IMPACT ON CORPORATIONS AND ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ENSURING COMPLIANCE WHEN POLICIES ARE ENACTED. PROCONSULS ARE CHOSEN FROM THE CORPORATIONS WITHOUT ADVICE OR CONSENT FROM THE EXCHANGE AND MAY BE REPLACED WITHOUT NOTICE. APPOINTMENTS ARE FORMALLY ACCEPTED BY THE EXCHANGE, AND ALTHOUGH PROVISIONS EXIST FOR THE EXCHANGE, AND ALTHOUGH PROVISIONS EXIST FOR THE EXCHANGE TO REJECT AN APPOINTMENT, IT HAS NEVER HAPPENED.

 

SITE DIRECTORS CONTROL THE OPERATIONS AT EACH DATACENTER UNDER INTERCORPEX CONTROL. THESE DATACENTERS HOUSE THE MATCHING ENGINES AND ARE LOCATED SEPARATE FROM THE TRADING FACILITIES IN EACH OF THE CITIES.

 

OPERATIONS DIRECTORS CONTROL THE TRADING OPERATIONS AT EACH TRADING CENTER. THERE IS ONE ASSIGNED IN BEIJING, FRANKFURT AND NEW YORK AND THEY REPORT TO A GLOBAL DIRECTOR OF EXCHANGE OPERATIONS LOCATED IN THE NEW YORK NETWORK OPERATIONS CENTER.

 

 

 

LEADERSHIP

INTERCORPEX SECURITY IS RESPONSIBLE FOR CONDUCTING INVESTIGATIONS INTO INCIDENTS INVOLVING MEMBER CORPORATIONS. SINCE THE ADOPTION OF THE ZURICH CANON, THEY ALSO INVESTIGATE PATRICIANS ACCUSED OF SPECIFIC VIOLATIONS. HIGHLY-TRAINED, PROFESSIONAL, AND INDEPENDENT, THEY INSPECTORS ASSIGNED ARE EXTREMELY CAPABLE AND MORALLY UNIMPEACHABLE. RUN BY THE COMMISSIONER-GENERAL BASED IN ZURICH, THERE ARE HUNDREDS OF INSPECTORS WHO TRAVEL THE WORLD AND SUBMIT THEIR REPORTS BACK WITH THEIR FINDINGS.
