Asset liquidity and collateral are two of the most urgent aspects of securities post trade as the covid-19 throws markets and daily work life into turmoil. This is reflected in the agenda as the industry gathers – online – for the PostTrade 360° Web Summit on 3 June. Book your free ticket today, if you haven’t already!
In the light of extraordinary numbers on ”gatings” – the freezing of transactions in funds for reasons of e.g. asset illiquidity or valuation ambiguity – Alastair Sewell of Fitch Ratings will show how European mutual funds markets have been spooked by the pandemic.
Paul Calderone, COO of Hazeltree, will offer a keynote on how to stay in control through the crisis, in terms of maintaining funding and liquidity. Guido Stroemer, CEO of Swiss new-thinker HQLAx, will dig into technology implications in collateral swaps in the securities lending area. And Richard Metcalfe, head of regulatory affairs at the World Federation of Exchanges, will look closer at the determining factors for collateral requirements – increasingly important as the number of margin calls rise.
See the agenda develop rapidly at the conference website, where you can also sign up, free of charge, for the online event that takes place on 3 June.
