Why You Should Attend

OTC Derivatives Forum Asia 2015

Since the advent of the Global Financial Crisis, the murky world of OTC derivatives has come under increased scrutiny. A flurry of legislation has been decided upon changing the foundations of how OTC trades are conducted. After an extensive consulting period, 2014-2015 will begin the transformation process for the OTC markets. Uncertainty for the future is leading to operational changes in the way OTC desks around the world are going to conduct business.

This marcusevans event "OTC Derivatives Forum Asia 2015" will bring together accomplished speakers to analyse the pressing issues affecting those involved in the derivatives function in leading financial institutions around APAC. Burning issues such as the impact of standardised initial margin on non-cleared trades, updates on major legislation frameworks and implementation in Asia, future of CCP's in the region, improving collateral management as well as creating transparency in pricing noncleared trades for clients will be discussed.

There is also a post-conference workshop on minimising enterprise risk associated with collateral management on a firm wide basis. Creating a centralised management desk, breaking down siloed thinking as well as developing fundamentals of transfer pricing will be discussed to enhance the current organisational capabilities and taking them to the next level.
