The Dynamics Driving OTC Markets, London Conference, 2015

29 Sep 2015

Regulations in the form of Basel lll, EMIR, Dodd-Frank, MiFID, IFRS and IOSCO have altered the structure of the OTC markets. This has led banks to focus on pricing and managing costs in a consistent fashion at a trade, desk and business level. These changes are not just impacting sell-side firms. Central clearing is impacting operations, valuation, and risk management for all buy-side firms.



"It has been an excellent conference, like last year. I learnt and caught up with what was going on,
on the counterparty side, MiFID and new regulations, and developments in the CVA market  "

Quantifi's 3rd annual risk conference took place at the magnificent Vintners' Hall, City of London. Over 100 senior practitioners from across the industry gathered for an afternoon of unique insights, discussions and sharing of best practices.
