Article: Non-cleared margin rules put spotlight on Blazer market hub01 September 2016 | Risk Magazine Feed
With today being the start of the new era of OTC business, the bilateral margin rules are now applicable in the US, Japan and Canada, you might like to learn more about the new margin platforms from our Breakfast Briefing we held earlier in the year. You can watch the video sessions here including a piece by David White at TriOptima which is one side of the Blazer coin. If you want to see the full details of how TriOptima and AcadiaSoft run the 'blazer' platform, buy a copy of our Rocket Special Edition on Margining which contains the best diagram showing a functional map and interconnections between all the vendors we featiured at the event.
If you are at a bank having to start making these margin calls - we'd be interested to hear how prepared you are for today, and how the delays in other jurisdictions are affecting you. All information kept confidential, unless you give permission to publish.
