Risk management practices and new trade reporting regimes in Australia's OTC derivatives market


About the course

In response to a rapidly changing environment Asia Risk Magazine presents this practical workshop on clearing and settling OTC derivatives. With ASIC's rules for trade repositories and trade reporting due to be in place by July this year, the workshop offers a timely and convenient fixture for all those involved in Australia's OTC derivatives space.

Risk practitioners, investors and buy side professionals will enjoy advice from leading speakers on the extraterritorial reach of derivatives regulations and what this means for Australian markets; meeting requirements of the new trade reporting and repository regimes, selecting clearing members, managing margins calls, and managing central and bilateral trading systems.
