The Finance Hive Spotlight: UMR & Clearing

Location TBA, Date TBC

Uncleared Margin Rules have the potential to significantly shake up the FX ecosystem. Drastic changes to operating models on the sell side and moves to new sources of liquidity on the buy side has immediate and slow-burning implications for a wide range of buy side organisations.

Cutting through the legal jargon, and breaking down the complexities, this Finance Hive meeting is designed so you can walk away with a clear understanding of how the impending UMR deadlines will affect the industry, your firm and your role.

We are tailoring the meeting for traders and back office professionals to make sure you learn everything you need to know. Regardless of whether you are in scope and need to work out what your UMR roadmap looks like, or you are more focused on understanding how bank behaviour and the overall liquidity picture for FX derivatives is going to evolve as a consequence of those who are affected, our unique approach to creating a personal agenda for each attendee ensures these objectives will be met by engaging in detailed, and focused discussion with your direct peers, solution providers and regulators.

Tailored exclusively for:
Global Heads of Trading, Heads of FX/Fixed Income Trading, Senior Traders, Heads of Dealing, Heads of Execution, Multi-Asset Traders, CIOs and CEOs from long-only asset management firms, hedge funds, systematic hedge funds, alternative asset managers, currency managers, sovereign wealth funds and pension funds.

We are being joined by Patricia Saenz de Maturana, Senior Policy Advisor, IOSCO  who commented –

I’m delighted to be attending the meeting next month. For us, it’s important to hear directly and candidly from various market participants, including the buy side. We see this as an important opportunity to explain the objectives of the regulation which we hope will facilitate compliance and greater understanding for all involved.”
