Rocket Special Edition on Collateral and Margining

On the 7th April 2016, The OTC Space and The Field Effect hosted a 'breakfast briefing' in the centre of Canary Wharf, 35 floors up with bright spring morning views. You can find out more about the event here

We produced a special edition of Rocket Magazine for this event, which one recipient called 'the bible of margin activity', which may be an over statement, but it's a useful snapshot of the latest services.  The contents includes:

  • Collateral Hurdles: Understanding Regulatory Challenges and Industry Solutions (Bill Hodgson and Nick Stafford from The Field Effect)
  • Margining and Collateral: The New Operating Model (David Field and Nick Stafford from The Field Effect)
  • The Game Change for Collateral Management (David White, TriOptima)
  • Beyond Standard Two-Way Margining (David Maloy, COO NetOTC)
  • Are You Ready For Uncleared Derivatives Margining (Banu Apers, Clearstream)
  • The Future of Collateral Management (Karl Wyborn, CloudMargin)

This publication is the most up to date picture of what the latest Collateral platforms are offering. This item is an electronic PDF version of the magazine, which will be delivered to you by email. The PDF is formatted in landscape to fit your computer or tablet screen comfortably.
