Deluge or Drought in Liquidity Markets? How new regulations are transforming collateral management 

Date:
6 February 2015

Organiser:
City and Financial Conferences

The fallout of regulatory reform for most banks and capital market participants has transformed collateral management into a complex, costly exercise involving higher volumes of collateral, increased margin calls and interaction with counterparties. The new regulations will result in wholesale changes to how OTC derivatives are settled, collateralised and reported.

This event will address the issues of greatest concern for firms: collateral availability, strategies to comply with regulations and dispute management.
