Unfolding the Complexity of OTC Derivatives Reform in APAC – HKMA Phase 2 Reporting, MiFID II and Non-Cleared Margining

Time: Tuesday, 28 Feb 2017, 2:00pm-4:00pm (Singapore/Hong Kong)

Venue: 27 Floor, Jardine House, One Connaught Place, Central, Hong Kong

With HKMA Phase 2 mandatory reporting commencing on 1st July 2017, and MAS enforcing equity and commodity derivatives reporting for banks in 2nd half of 2017, OTC derivatives trade reporting is approaching completion in Australia and Singapore and ramping up in Hong Kong. Meanwhile, trade reporting is also expected to start in other APAC countries such as Korea and Philippines. On a grand scale, MiFID II reporting coming on 3rd Jan 2018 covers a much broader range of requirements including transaction reporting, pre-trade and post-trade transparency reporting, commodities position reporting, and reference data reporting and systematic internaliser determination. MiFID II impacts a wider range of entity types and covers a much broader spectrum of instrument types. The upcoming margin requirements for non-cleared OTC derivatives on 1st March 2017 also brings extra burden to firms’ daily operations.

How are these upcoming regulations impacting your existing operational processes and technology platforms? Will they be able to scale? How to prepare with your plan of attack?

You are invited to join an information session for OTC Derivatives Reform in APAC, jointly brought to you by Catena Technologies, Clifford Chance, and IHS Markit. The session will discuss the legal aspects of the HKMA reporting, MiFID II and non-cleared margining.
