Trying to drive without being able to see the road ahead is not a comfortable feeling: Dodd-Frank and other regulatory reforms are underway that will require derivatives to centrally clear and trade on electronic platforms, profoundly changing the financial industry and the over-the-counter derivatives environment. As the second anniversary of Dodd Frank approaches and with detail around these regulations still in flux, the buy-side is looking for a roadmap to determine what they must act upon to be prepared.
State Street Corporation and TABB Group will preview findings from their new study of buy-side swap market participants who collectively represent more than $10 trillion in assets under management. The findings illustrate the state of the industry’s readiness to implement the key provisions of swaps reform, and describe how firms are focusing heavily on the clearing aspect of regulatory requirements while struggling to digest the new margin demands being placed upon them.
• Charley Cooper, Senior Managing Director at State Street Global Markets
• JR Lowry, Senior Vice President at State Street Global Services
• Will Rhode, Principal & Director of Fixed Income at TABB Group
The 30 minute presentation will cover the following:
• The six key issues the buy side must solve to successfully transition to the post Dodd Frank market
• The services that could influence decisions to choose an FCM and/or prime broker
• Potential unintended consequences of regulatory reform
• What the industry can do to prepare for meeting the challenges of regulatory reform
