The OTC Derivatives Markets Conference
26 September 2013, London E1
Efficiency and execution in the new regulatory environment
Risk is delighted to be working with the Wholesale Markets Brokers' Association (WMBA) to launch the first OTC Derivatives Markets Conference, which will take place on 26 September 2013 in London.
This event will be the number one conference for, and designed by, derivatives brokers and their customers. The agenda will also feature leading regulators and the architects of the new rules that will shape the over-the-counter markets.
Last year European Market Infrastructure Regulation (EMIR) became law and regulators have been working to iron out the myriad technical details of reporting and clearing requirements, as well as understanding how European law will interface with foreign rules, not least US Dodd Frank legislation.
And European legislators are also working to finalise revisions to the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive and Regulation (MIFID) - legislation that will introduce tough new trading rules.
The OTC Derivatives Markets Conference will enable WMBA members and their customers to discuss the impact of these changes. Getting the rules right is crucial not just for the largest brokers and banks, but also the universe of end-users that trade derivatives in Europe and elsewhere.
This one-day conference will focus on the key issues of:
- Adoption of clearing requirements in Europe
- The EU Financial Transaction Tax
- Extraterritoriality and differences in regulations around the globe
- Impact on liquidity
- Implementation of initial margin requirements for non-cleared derivatives
- Collateral transformation
- Futurisation of swaps -the impact on the OTC business
Key speakers include:
Head of Cabinet of Commissioner Michel Barnier - Internal Market and Services, EUROPEAN COMMISSION
Member of the European Parliament and Rapporteur for the revision of MiFID and MiFIR
Policy and Technical Director, THE ASSOCIATION OF CORPORATE TREASURERS
Technical Specialist, Market Infrastructure and Policy, UK FINANCIAL CONDUCT AUTHORITY
