Stakeholders from all sides, including standard bearer ISDA, will enter the online stage on 3 June as the full-day PostTrade 360° Web Summit hosts a panel on how derivatives-related operations have stood up under the covid-19 crisis.

Rarely are markets, and all the actors who enable them, put to the test the way they were this spring. As for the derivatives side, 3 June will be the occasion for us in the post-trade industry to grade ourselves on how we coped.

In the regulation track of the meaty PostTrade 360° Web Summit, this panel before lunch will feature speakers from both sell- and buy-side, as well as from the heavily influential International Swaps and Derivatives Association (ISDA). Their focus will be on the OTC derivatives margins.

PostTrade 360 Nordic 2024

Panelists are …
Amy Caruso, Head of Collateral Initiatives, International Swaps and Derivatives Association, Inc. (ISDA),
Krzysztof Wierzchowski, Director, Global Trade Services – Derivatives & FX, Franklin Templeton Services, 
Fredrik Söderlund, Head of Business Development for Collateral Services, SEB,
Craig Pearson, Director & Co-Founder, Margin Tonic, and 
Heiko Cassens, Head of Sales and Relationship Management, EMEA and APAC, LCH.
Moderator is Duncan Scott, Margin Transit Utility Product Development, London, DTCC.

We guess they will not be running out of things to talk about, as we wonder what their most intense weeks were like, where we are going now, how collateral is handled, what are the implications on haircuts, agreements, initial margins … And what will be gained (or not) as the 5th and 6th phase of the new margin rules on non-centrally cleared derivatives transactions (“UMR”) have been postponed? 

There is no denying that regulations play a key role in forming this part of the securities landscape. But on what areas is the industry putting itself in the driving seat for change – and where is it steering?
