Reg and tech trends (panel discussion):

The postponement of The Securities Financing Transactions Regulation for phase one entities has led to a lot of confusion, hurdles for companies to overcome and unanswered questions. With impending regulatory regimes such as CSDR looking to shake the securities finance market, we discuss whether firms are prepared to meet their regulatory obligations and how technology can be used to benefit market participants.

  • SFTR reporting – is the market ready? How will it impact on repo activity? What should the buy side be doing now?

  • Central Securities Depositories Regulation (CSDR) - Discussing the key findings from ICMA’s impact study. Should the market expect further delays?

  • Collateral Management & UMR - What is the impact on collateral demand & repo? Are there learnings that can be shared across buy side/ sell side collateral management practices?

  • Electronic trading uptake and impediments to take up.

Moderator: Phil Morgan, COO, Pirum Systems
