Originally Aired: Tuesday, March 31, 2015

Duration: 60 minutes
In this webcast we will discuss the risks posed by derivatives, both cleared and uncleared, in the context of the current, still evolving regulatory landscape. Specific to cleared swaps, we will cover the mechanisms by which clearinghouses mitigate risks, and help clarify the debate over potential additional risk-mitigating measures. We will also discuss the possible expansion of the mandatory clearing regime to cover certain foreign exchange transactions (NDFs) in both the US and the EU. With regard to uncleared swaps, we will review the recently released margin proposals of the CFTC and the Federal banking agencies, as well as the ways these rules, if implemented, could arguably increase systemic risks rather than decreasing them.
