Regulatory changes such as mandatory central clearing of OTC interest rate derivatives pose major challenges for pension funds. This webcast discusses some of these challenges and explores what opportunities might be derived from these changes. Industry experts will tackle operational readiness for switching from a bilateral to a centrally cleared model, the access to raise intra-day cash variation margin, and best execution on behalf of the end clients.

  • Review of regulatory aspects: What is in scope? What happens with historical positions? Which role does the end of the time-limited equivalence for UK CCPs play in this context?
  • Evaluation of operational impacts and funding challenges: Is repo market access a prerequisite for PSAs in a centrally cleared world? If so, what should they consider? What is expected from central banks regarding backstop liquidity?
  • Strategic opportunities from central clearing: How can you achieve greater efficiencies and savings? How has market liquidity evolved?
