Risk Derivatives Clearing Europe

Risk is proud to announce the timely return of the Risk Derivatives Clearing Europe conference which will be held on 14 October 2014 in London!

Swaps reforms and new prudential rules have been changing the face of financial markets as we know them quite drastically. Potentially, we're just a few months away from live clearing; however, there are still many questions to answer in terms of the direct and indirect impact of the clearing mandate on the buy-side community.

Focusing on the most recent developments revolving around European derivatives clearing, this one-day event will aim to shed some light on remaining concerns of the buy-side community, and how they can prepare their businesses to support the vision of safer, more efficient and more liquid OTC markets.
