Hosted By Practising Law Institute

Over-the-counter (OTC) derivatives are key elements in many of our financial markets.  The Dodd-Frank Act and other regulations have changed and are continuing to change how these important instruments are regulated and transacted.  This program will introduce you to both the instruments and their current environment. 

Mayer Brown partner Curtis A. Doty will be presenting in the Regulatory Fundamentals session. The distinguished faculty will explain what OTC derivatives have been, what they are becoming and how they are documented.  The faculty will also provide an overview of the regulatory framework for OTC derivatives and OTC derivatives market participants and explain how the regulatory framework is affecting these markets and market participants. Topics will include: 

  • Regulated statuses: eligible contract participants, swap dealers, major swap participants and commodity pools
  • Regulated "utilities" and service providers: clearinghouses, futures commission merchants, swap execution facilities, swap data repositories
  • Extraterritorial issues
