Risk's OTC Derivatives Clearing Summit Europe

PLEASE NOTE, THIS WEBSITE CONTAINS INFORMATION RELATING TO THE 2012 CONFERENCE. ONCE UPDATES ARE AVAILABLE FOR THE 2013 CONFERENCE, THEY WILL BE POSTED HERE SO PLEASE CHECK BACK REGULARLY.

RISK magazine is proud to announce the launch of OTC Derivatives Clearing Summit Europe which will be held on 6th November, 2012 in London!

In response to the financial crisis, regulatory authorities across the globe have been busy creating comprehensive reforms to address fundamental shortcomings of the over-the-counter derivatives market. As the deadline approaches, the complexity of the global regulation becomes increasingly evident which raises the question whether the uniform legislative framework can be delivered across different jurisdictions by the end of the year.

In theory, these changes will remove the complex web of bilateral exposures that characterise today's OTC markets, while fostering greater transparency and competition. In practice, they could reduce liquidity, result in some participants exiting the market, radically alter the economics of the various OTC products, and create a new breed of too-big-to-fail institutions.

Focusing on the most current developments in OTC derivatives clearing, this one-day summit is a must-attend event for professionals who strive to fully comprehend how regulatory reform will impact the industry and how to prepare their businesses for this fundamental change.

Benefits of attending:

  • Review regulatory timelines for EMIR and MiFID II implementation and get an update on which products will be subject to mandatory clearing
  • Explore the new market structure and how it will affect the buy-side community
  • Join the discussion on extraterritorial challenges in a globally regulated OTC derivatives market
  • Examine the EU regulatory framework for OTC derivatives clearing and discuss remaining uncertainties revolving around the latest initiatives
