Webinar - Time to change your trade repository?

Webinar - Time to change your trade repository?

COOConnect Webinar - 14 October 2014

UnaVista participated in this COOConnect webinar on 14 November 2014, talking about whether its time for firms to change their trade repository.

Six months have elapsed since the reporting of derivatives transactions to competing trade repositories started in Europe. This is long enough for the differences between providers in terms of client service, technology and costs to be understood, with consequences for the compliance risk incurred by users of the services. If the competition proposed by regulators is to become effective, derivatives users must be prepared to move their portfolios. So how hard is it to move, especially in the light of the challenging start to the reporting process?


The webinar will be moderated by COOConnect founding partner Dominic Hobson, and will include the following panellists:
