A seismic change is underway in global financial markets. Requirements to post initial margin (IM) on uncleared OTC derivative trades are being implemented in many of the world’s major economies. This change presents a number of funding, legal, operational and compliance challenges for derivatives market participants.
As you continue to navigate the evolving global regulatory landscape, business environment and clients’ growing needs BNY Mellon Markets, Mayer Brown, IHS Markit and Margin Reform are hosting a forum where you can discuss, with your peers, the latest thinking and best practices regarding UMR. ISDA will also be participating in this event as guest speaker.
The session will take place in Frankfurt and will cover project design, segregation, legal requirements, margin calculation and reconciliation, collateral schedule management, collateral optimization and transformation, and synergies with Securities Finance.
