The Dynamics Driving OTC Markets, New York Conference, 2015

29 Oct 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.



"There are a lot of people here who are experts in their industry. The panel sessions were outstanding, 
I liked the balance with the buy-side and sell-side perspectives. I think Quantifi did a great job"

Quantifi's 1st Annual New York Risk Conference



Quantifi's 2nd annual risk conference took place at the Harmonie Club, New York. Over 100 senior practitioners from across the industry gathered for an afternoon of unique insights, discussions and sharing of best practices.
