The OTC derivatives space has undergone radical transformation in the last decade with sweeping regulatory reform that aims to shape the sector into a safer and more transparent one, however, the industry still lacks clarity in how new market infrastructure should operate post the 2008 financial crisis. Today, financial institutions and the derivatives industry in general face a new raft of challenges as a result of changing market conditions and an uncertain market climate.
In DerivSource’s first community forum, we explore the new market factors impacting market infrastructure and derivatives operations that both buy and sell-side firms are navigating, as well as the challenges that come with the political and market uncertainty and possible unintended consequences of regulatory reform.Join us to reflect on the predicted market changes (futurisation, collateral shortfall) that have not evolved as expected and to discuss the new trends that will shape the derivatives industry in the coming years.
This is a not to be missed event where we give a look into the future by focusing on the “new normal” for the derivatives industry. [Register now!] Led by DerivSource founder and editor, Julia Schieffer, this interactive forum will cover the following topics:
- How will Brexit and a possible repeal of Dodd-Frank impact the EU, UK and US derivatives markets?
- How are new technologies (blockchain, AI and robotics) likely to impact the derivatives industry specifically?
- Where are we with CCP clearing? How will the buy-side get in board?
- Will new technologies allow the market to leap frog over existing operational challenges?
- Are utilities the way forward for collateral management? What does the new ecosystem look like and what functions are best kept in-house, if any?
- Is the current regulation still effective in mitigating credit, market and systemic risks?
- Why haven’t previously predicted trends, collateral shortfall, futurisation, rush to CCP clearing, not evolved as predicted?
- Where are we with the futurisation trend? Do futurised swaps truly address market needs?
- Why are firms still trading bilaterally in significant volumes despite increasing costs and margin regulation?
