"Safer markets are a wholly understandable post crisis objective, but it is as well to remember that the vast majority of derivatives markets, whether exchange-traded or OTC, did not contribute to the causes of the crisis and actually performed very well throughout its cycle."
Anthony Belchambers, Chief Executive, Futures and Options Association.
OTC Derivatives Regulation
Thursday, 18th March 2010
Copthorne Tara Hotel London Kensington W8
Reform of OTC derivatives is gathering pace as regulators seek to find ways to prevent a repeat of the near collapse of the financial system after the demise of Bear Stearns, the default of Lehman Brothers and the bailout of AIG. Central to this effort in both Washington and Brussels is the shift - in the words of the EU's October Communication - from a "predominantly OTC bilateral to more centralized clearing and settlement".
Organised in association with The Futures and Options Association this important conference, which will examine the likely shape of future OTC Derivatives Regulation and features presentations from the three key regulatory jurisdictions of the USA, EU and UK.
The conference will cover:
• Current Regulatory Initiatives
• Recent Market Developments
• Clear and Execution of the OTC Transactions
• The Future of non-CCP Cleared Products
• Increased Trade Transparency
