Regulatory mandates continue to drive change in the OTC markets, these changes are impacting the way financial institutions do business in multiple interrelated ways. Rising capital ratio requirements are impacting bank profitability and return on equity, and forcing banks to clear many OTC trades. 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.
