Date:
10 September 2015

Venue: Palau de Congressos de Catalunya, Avenida Diagonal 661-671, 08028 Barcelona, Spain

Organiser: Euromoney

The covered bond purchase programme and record low interest rates are fundamentally altering the structure of the covered bond market. The investor base is changing rapidly and trading desks are looking at ways to come to terms with the illiquidity and the implications of MIFID.

At the same time European regulators are looking to covered bonds to be an engine of growth but still a source of financial stability. Capital Markets Union and the forthcoming Covered Bond Green Paper are potential game changers.

Outside Europe more and more countries, in both developed and emerging markets, are turning to the product as a way to fund their economies.

Derivatives Post Trade Processing & Liquidity Management in New Regulated Markets
Managing Processes in Turbulent Times
 

Date:
21 September 2015

Venue: CityPoint, One Ropemaker Street, London EC2Y 9SS

Organiser: City & Financial Global

New financial regulation has put post-trade processes for ETD (exchange traded) and OTC (over- the -counter) derivatives at the core of strategic changes for many financial institutions. Middle and back-office processes are essential to ensure a firm is compliant with new regulatory rules and remains competitive in the changing derivatives landscape.  The morning sessions will focus on post trade processing for derivatives, with discussion topics including:
  • How has global regulatory reform reshaped the post trade landscape for OTC & ETD?
  • Changes in the derivatives post-trade landscape and the impact on collateral efficiency and fluidity
  • Examining the various segregation models under EMIR: does Europe have too many depositories and is too fragmented to allow for harmonised post trade processing for derivatives?
The afternoon sessions will cover liquidity in the new regulated market, where discussion topics will include:
  • Liquidity in the new regulated market: the impact of Basel III/ MiFID/EMIR and Central Securities Depositories regulation
  • Transforming collateral: what are the unintended consequences of new regulations for the repo and securities lending markets?
  • The impact of liquidity regulation on Europe’s corporates
