Since 2008, regulatory changes to prevent another crisis from occurring have been incrementally rolled out.

Only the largest dealers are in the first wave of firms impacted by the new requirements, but the scope broadens year on year out to 2019 to encompass a wide range of firms active in the OTC derivatives markets.

Conquering the Cost Conundrum

Current changes in the financial industry are proving to be costly for market participants. For example, the push by regulators for more centralised clearing of OTC derivatives means that portfolios will have to be split between cleared and un-cleared derivatives. Margining for OTC markets is also becoming increasingly complex and the management of assets delivered to cover these exposures are another source of cost. Knowledge that the cost of trading could increase further still has prompted many to re-asses their stance. Many are turning to market infrastructures with sophisticated triparty collateral management solutions such as Clearstream’s Global Liquidity Hub for a one-stop- shop solution to meet this multitude of challenges in an efficient and cost-saving manner.
