Regulatory change and what it means for custodians

So far, the new OTCD regulatory requirements have predominantly impacted the largest firms in the banking industry.

But as the imposed regulatory threshold becomes smaller, a large number of financial institutions and buy-side firms from outside the traditional interbank market will also need to start exchanging Initial Margin for their OTC derivatives activity.

This session explores the impact of this development on the market and, in particular, the implications on the custodian community.

Collateral management and financing beyond traditional asset classes

Key regulatory developments have resulted in a dramatic increase in the need for collateral and as a result collateral pools are beginning to constrict.

During this session we will look at how widespread acceptance of new asset classes could help boost the supply of collateral and the challenges that need to be overcome before this comes to fruition.
