How new regulations are transforming collateral management
America Square Conference Centre, London EC3, Friday 6th February – see discount code for OTCS readers below.

The fallout of regulatory reform for most banks and capital market participants has transformed collateral management into a complex, costly exercise involving higher volumes of collateral, increased margin calls and interaction with counterparties. This event will address the issues of greatest concern for firms: collateral availability, strategies to comply with regulations and dispute management. The new regulations will result in wholesale changes to how OTC derivatives are settled, collateralised and reported. Collateral management onceconsidered a support function is gaining in both popularity and importance.

This conference should be attended by Chief Executive Officers, Chief Risk Officers, Vice Presidents, Directors and Heads of: Collateral Management; Collateral Trading; Repo Trading; HFT; Counterparty Risk; Operations; OTC Derivatives; Securities Lending and Borrowing; Middle/Back Office; Equity/Fixed Income; Hedge Funds; Asset Management Houses, as well as Economists and professionals serving the banking industries.
