4. Clients in Distress - Bankruptcy and Sanctions

Maryland Suite, Lobby Level

With recent Ukraine related sanctions, firms and DCOs need to be on alert should a customer be placed on a sanction list. But what is the firm allowed to do? This panel will explore the law around OFAC sanctions and what steps a firm should take to protect itself when carrying margined positions. The panel will also discuss proposed Treasury AML and OFAC rules. The panel will also give a short primer on bankruptcy rules and touch on the practical realities of what happens in bankruptcy of a client both voluntary and involuntary.
