White Paper: Examining the Current State of the OTC Derivatives Market


By surveying experiences and opinions in relation to issues such as trade data reporting, implementation timelines and the overall outlook for global regulation to date, this white paper aims to provide insight into successes and failures from the point of view of those on the front lines of regulatory change.



The over-the-counter (OTC) derivatives market is in the midst of a global regulatory restructure. Authorities in Europe, Asia and the US are currently rolling out schemes that have been years in the making, establishing different trading venues, reworking reporting requirements and dividing market participants into new categories. The major aims of this endeavor are to increase transparency, reduce systemic risk and strengthen financial stability. While the details of these reforms tend to differ between jurisdictions, broadly speaking the changes involve mandating exchange trading and central clearing for all regulated products, applying rigorous reporting obligations and enacting strict standards governing capital and margin requirements.
