Uncleared Margin Reform: Ask Us Anything Webinar


Uncleared Margin Reform: Ask Us Anything

Tuesday 7th March 2017, 16:30 GMT (11:30 EST)


While the CFTC, Hong Kong, Singapore and Australia have provided transition periods for compliance with Uncleared Margin Reform, US and European prudential regulators, Japan and Canada have not. Regardless of forbearance, the pressure to get as many counterparty relationships repapered as possible remains high priority.

In this follow-up to our previous webinar, Axiom’s Global Banking Team, Senior Guest Speakers and The OTC Space will provide an update on key market developments, share insights on project strategy, and answer questions from the audience.

This event is aimed at both the sell- and buy-side firms impacted by variation margin reform. We will provide insights on questions such as:

  • What is the current state of deadlines from the SEC, CFTC, ESMA and Asia?
  • How should I balance new BAU negotiations vs. ongoing VM remediation?
  • How should I handle specific deal-driven remediations vs. programmatic, prioritized remediations post-deadline?
  • How do I prioritize remediating lower-value trading relationships from jurisdictions without forbearance vs. higher-value relationships from jurisdictions that have forbearance?
