Cleared vs Non-cleared Derivatives The margin rules for non-cleared derivatives were explicitly calibrated by regulators to encourage a shift to central clearing. But with clearing activity running ahead of the mandates, is it time to assess whether those incentives are set at the right level?

A Global Capital Framework? While the industry waits for the revised set of final rules for market risk from the Basel Committee, national regulators are working to implement the latest set of capital measures into local rules. How are national authorities approaching this, and to what extent will the rules be consistent, appropriate and risk sensitive? Is a truly harmonized capital framework achievable – and even desirable?

The Documentation Revolution Derivatives processes are increasingly shifting to automated solutions, but legal documentation remains largely paper-based. A number of industry solutions are now under way to digitize the process of negotiating, executing and storing legal agreements, including the new ISDA Create platform.
