Derivatives 2014: A Market in Transition
May 6, 2014 (The W City Center, Chicago)

Derivatives markets are in transition.  Regulatory pressure to increase transparency and reduce risk exposures are both an opportunity and a challenge.  As OTC derivatives are increasingly traded and cleared on exchanges, shifts in market structure are inevitable.  Exchanges are revamping product offerings, brokers are evolving business models and the buy side is being forced to learn new ways to manage exposures.  How are derivatives markets evolving to support these structural shifts?  What do market participants need to do to adapt to the new trading environment?  Where are the most promising opportunities for future growth? #TABBderivs

ECMI: The EMIR Implementation
June 6, 2013 (Brussels)

Following the entry into force of the EMIR regulation and the technical standards issued by the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA), market participants are dealing with a complex list of requirements to be fulfilled at different deadlines in the coming months. For market participants, the key challenge will be to meet the central clearing and trade reporting obligations, while regulators strive to ensure consistency with non-EU jurisdictions so as to limit the unintended effects of extraterritoriality. This event aims at recapping on-going developments and identifying stumbling blocks in the implementation process, which may further delay the full entry into force of EMIR. The regulation, with its implementing rules, will certainly reshape OTC derivative markets and produce structural changes in the financial industry, with effects for the real economy. Panelists will also discuss long-term market and industry perspectives, taking into consideration the interaction of EMIR with other pieces of legislation.
