Derivatives market participants are becoming subject to a series of regulatory requirements related to clearing, trade reporting, and record-keeping. Even occasional corporate end-users of derivatives will have to prepare to comply with certain of these new obligations. In this session, we will provide a comprehensive overview of all of the considerations relevant to end-users, including:

  • Ensuring ability to rely on the end-user exception;
  • The mechanics of clearing;
  • Corporate actions to be taken by end-users;
  • Establishing a clearing relationship;
  • Margin requirements;
  • The ISDA D-F Protocols and commonly used bilateral agreements;
  • Hedging policies; and
  • Understanding the requirements applicable to swap dealers.

PLI will provide CLE credit.
