UMR: The unintended consequences – 4:25 – 5:10 CET

With the intention of creating a more secure marketplace, UMR came to be a result of the financial crisis of 2008.

Whilst the initial phases mostly affected banks, the previous and final stage will bring more firms into scope, and with the implementation deadline just months away, how prepared is the market?

  • UMR is here to stay and with the current final phase to be rolled out in September, how are buy-side firms meeting or expecting to meet the demand for quality liquidity and platforms in a volatile and uncertain market?
  • In an ever-changing market where liquidity is fragmented and regulations are increasing, what are the alternate liquidity sources, tools and platforms available to financial market participants?
  • As buy-side clients and asset owners become increasingly affected by counterpart risk, how will this drive trading behaviour? What is the cost of trade beyond execution? How is collateral optimization becoming more critical?
  • Are companies leaning towards outsourcing the operational pain points to custodian banks or towards a proprietary solution?
  • Understanding the impact of UMR on the buy-side community and treasury management trends amidst Covid-19.
