Solving the Cross-Border Regulatory Puzzle: How do firms navigate the differences in various jurisdictions globally?

Ritz-Carlton Ballroom 3-6

The goals of regulators around the globe are the same – protect investors, foster well-functioning markets and reduce systemic risks while minimizing friction on a cross-border basis through global harmonization of derivatives regulations. Despite these efforts, a single transaction may be subject to different requirements in different jurisdictions, including variances for trade execution on electronic platforms, margin and collateral, reporting, documentation, clearing, portfolio reconciliation, and trade aggregation requirements. In addition to Dodd-Frank, MiFID II and EMIR, Brexit is coming. This panel will discuss the cross-border regulatory impacts and how firms manage these cross-border issues.
