Last fall, the CFTC and Prudential Banking Regulators proposed rules that would require margin to be posted in connection with many uncleared swaps and security-based swaps.  When finalized and implemented, those rules are likely to change significantly the economics of the OTC swaps market.  This session offers an in-depth look at the margin proposals.


  • The entities and uncleared transactions that would be subject to Margin requirements;
  • Initial Margin requirements, including applicable thresholds (Material Swaps Exposure and Initial Margin Threshold Amount) and issues in connection with same;
  • Variation Margin requirements; and
  • Likely timeframe for finalization and implementation.
