The Future of Centralized Clearing of OTC Derivatives in Australia
In the wake of the global financial crisis, regulators of the G20 (Group of 20) have committed to significant reforms in the financial derivatives markets. The aim is to strengthen the resilience of markets by introducing standardized frameworks, trading platforms and trade reporting. A central element in the reform is the introduction of a Central Counterparty Clearing House (CCP) to settle trades. John Feeney will discuss the reforms underway in the US and Europe and introduce key concepts of bilateral over-the-counter OTC derivatives clearing from a risk management perspective. He will also review recent regulatory directions of CCP clearing in Australia and weigh the pros and cons of CCP under various options.
