2016 ISDA Annual Europe Conference and Press Briefing

Accredited journalists are invited to attend the event and morning press briefing. Please RSVP to Molly Lyne (mlyne@isda.org).

September 1 marks the start of the most extensive transformation of derivatives markets in decades. From that date, the first wave of large banks is due to start exchanging collateral on their non-cleared derivatives trades, a requirement that will expand to other derivatives users over time.

The advent of margining rules for non-cleared trades is a major milestone in the derivatives reform initiative agreed by the Group-of-20 nations. This year’s ISDA regional conferences will focus on this development, explain why it is important and explore the progress made in implementing the rules.

In addition, ISDA Board members, including CEO Scott O’Malia and Chairman Eric Litvack, will discuss the significance of the rules, and issues that have emerged during implementation.

Additional information regarding the conference, including an agenda, is available on the Association’s website. An updated agenda will be available in due course.
