In the wake of financial and trading scandals, such as LIBOR fixing, insider trading etc that have rocked banks globally, financial institutions face increasing resentment alongside blame for causing the current economic crises. Calls for increased transparency and regulations have been addressed by regulators and complied with by banks to ensure greater accountability.
With stricter regulations being enacted, 2013 will begin to see these in effect. Post-trading procedures will have to change to keep up with both the regulatory changes as well as financial products being used. The global tagline for all businesses, more than ever is to “Increase efficiency while cutting costs”.
Informa’s 7th Annual Clearing, Settlement & Custody Asia Forum will continue to provide Asia’s leading networking platform for attendees, while equipping them with the necessary practical strategies to work more efficiently. This is a focused event to enhance your understanding and implementation of the latest regulatory changes. Discuss best practices and hear from industry leaders as well as regulators on how to best navigate the ever-changing post-trading environment.
Key discussions across the 2-day programme include:
- Deadline for FATCA implementation coming up in Jan 2013 – effects of this on banks
- Singapore’s new position as China’s 2nd offshore RMB clearing house
- Sweeping reforms mandated by G20 affecting EMIR and Dodd-Frank expected to be in place by end 2012, 2013 will be a review on the changes and implications
- Due to greater regulations, more CCPs will spring up and back office will need to deal with multiple CCPs, changing the way they’ve traditionally dealt with them
- As the global financial markets enter a 5th year of slow growth, financial products that were once ignored are now being traded more actively
