OTC Derivatives Clearing Conference

Central Clearing has grown quickly since the financial crisis, and further growth is expected particularly for OTC derivatives. A major cause of this growth is post-crisis legislation mandating clearing: both Dodd-Frank in the US and EMIR in the EU require the clearing of certain OTC derivatives transactions. By these means, amongst others, clearing is being imposed on a large fraction of OTC derivatives causing radical structural change of these markets. It is also apparent that these changes and their implications are complex. Building on ISDA’s Fundamentals of OTC Derivatives Clearing, this conference offers an opportunity to learn more about critical aspects of central clearing and its implications for the financial system.
