Risk Derivatives Clearing Europe
6 October 2015, London

Risk is delighted to announce the return of the Risk Derivatives Clearing Europe conference which will be held on 6 October 2015 in London.

As reporting requirements for derivatives contracts are now in place, and OTC derivatives clearing deadlines are fast approaching, implementation challenges have come to a head and the focus is now on ensuring that requirements can be met. However, just how clearing mandates will effect and cost the buy-side community is still uncertain, with many questions remaining.

Risk Derivatives Clearing Europe is a one-day event that is perfectly timed to deliver key updates regarding European derivatives clearing and address the challenges the buy-side are facing in implementing clearing mandates.

The programme will be announced soon - to be notified of programme updates email: rebecca.hancock@gtforum.com
