Advanced Swaps & Other Derivatives 2010

October 19, 2010
New York, NY

Why You Should Attend

The credit crisis has led to the most extensive overhaul of financial regulation since the early 20th century.  The reform legislation establishes a comprehensive framework for the regulation of over-the-counter derivatives and the market participants who transact in these products.

These reforms touch the activities of all participants in the swaps markets.  From end users to major swap participants to swap dealers.  They will also affect a broad range of market facilities from clearinghouses to exchanges, swap execution facilities and swap data repositories.

These reforms impose registration requirements, mandatory clearing and trading requirements; margin requirements, capital and business conduct standards, transaction and position reporting, as well as limitations on swap positions.

The reforms also establish new limitations on the scope of derivatives and proprietary trading activities that may be conducted by certain financial institutions.

At this program, our distinguished faculty will provide a comprehensive overview of the new regulatory framework for over-the-counter derivatives and derivatives market participants and explain how the new regulatory framework will affect these products, the structure of the market for these products and market participants.  The program will also cover documentation issues, recent developments in tax, accounting and litigation related to derivatives, as well as professional responsibility issues associated with derivatives.
