  • New York, NY (1888PressRelease) June 03, 2013 - The Dodd-Frank Act requires to clear certain types of interest rate swaps and credit default swaps. This clearing mandate started in March 2013 for a subset of market participants, with further phases to follow in June and September this year. Combined with the EU's EMIR that was enacted in January, both of these initiatives will mean the vast majority of OTC interest rate swap contracts will have to be centrally cleared. There are an estimated 4,000 buy-side firms that will have to comply either with US or European legislation, and approximately 20 clearing members offering client clearing (many more banks are clearing members for only their house trading activity).

    How big of a change are these requirements for hedge funds and asset managers in particular? Which portion of asset managers and hedge funds' portfolios are currently clearable?
    What systems and tools are available to calculate both the amount of margin required and the securities that can be pledged to meet the margin obligations?
    Will clearing members have capacity constraints and be unable to serve as a clearing member for all of their clients?

    These questions will be debated at Tech2Trade Expo 2013's Derivatives Trading Forum 2013 (, this July 30 in New York City, September 18 in London., October 8 in Chicago, October 24 in Singapore and November 21 in Frankfurt.
