The Dynamics Driving OTC Markets - London Highlights

Chaired by Moorad Choudhry, Department of Mathematical Sciences, Brunel University, the conference explored the impact of regulations, the changing landscape of the OTC derivatives market with respect to valuation and risk management, the role of central clearing, and the trend towards centralised XVA desks.

Lee focussed on central clearing of OTC derivatives and the associated collateral, margin and capital requirements. He also emphasised how regulations are unbundling traditional OTC derivatives markets and consequently creating threats and opportunities for different market participants.
