W2:00A Market Structure: How will changes in the clearing model impact customers and markets?

Continental A
The effects of financial reform are being felt in the U.S. and Europe as well as other financial centers around the world.  The clearing model that has worked well for futures is undergoing dramatic changes.  Clearing members, customers and traders will discuss how they are responding to new realities and what it means for customers.  Panelists will cover capital considerations including leverage ratio, indirect clearing, cross-border challenges, client self-clearing and regulatory uncertainty.  When reform is complete, will the world be a safer place?
