W3:45B Commodities: Will hedging survive?

Continental B
The fundamental reason derivatives markets exist is to give commercials, money managers and asset managers a vehicle for offsetting risk. As the regulatory landscape evolves, have we done enough to protect and preserve the ability of commercial entities and financial institutions to hedge? Panelists will discuss recent regulatory developments, including position limits in the U.S. and Europe and the impact of a potential change in the de minimis swap dealing threshold on commodity marketers, stepped up enforcement actions, and the impact of banks exiting the commodity business.

Chair:

Allison Lurton, Senior Vice President & General Counsel, FIA

Speakers:

Matthew Chamberlain, Head of Business Development, London Metal Exchange
Eric Juzenas, Principal Adviser, Office of Commissioner Bowen, Commodity Future Trading Commission
David Louw, Division Director, Risk Management Group, Compliance, Macquarie Group
Paul Pantano, Partner, Cadwalader Wickersham & Taft
