It's a no-brainer; the financial industry has changed a lot over the last decades. There are multiple causes. Among the structural factors, one can mention the rise of technology, the decimalization and electronification of exchanges, the introduction of ECNs for equity, the increases in volume and speed of those exchanges. There were also significant regulatory changes (MiFID, Basel, Dodd-Frank...). Derivatives trading has changed a lot too. But what happened to the VIX on February 5th, could be a wake-up call to the industry and generate another wave of deep changes.
