Dynamics Driving OTC Markets, London

Quantifi's 2nd annual risk conference, 2014, at the historic Armourers Hall, London, attracted over 120 delegates from across the industry for a compelling afternoon of unique insights and discussion on 'The Dynamics Driving OTC Markets'

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.

Moderated by Milena Imamovic-Tomasovic, the panel reflected on the impact of market changes on XVA pricing and modelling methodology, how banks are dealing with a regulatory divergence in the market and centralised XVA processes

George Handjinicolaou, Deputy CEO, ISDA provided an overview of the structural changes to the OTC markets in response to the G20 reforms designed to reduce systemic risk and increase transparency across global financial markets. 

“This session from Quantifi was excellent, it was very engaging, the quality of speakers was exceptional. The audience was engaged right from the beginning to the end”
