Location: PwC, 90 PARK AVENUE (Between 39th & 40th Street)

New York, NY

Time: Registration & Cocktails 5:30 PM – Program Start 6:15 PM 


Please join our distinguished panel as we explore the following topics related to Central Clearing Counterparties (CCPs) and Financial Market Utilities (FMUs):
  • How are CCPs responding to new challenges? Discussion of evolving risk management at CCPs
  • How macroeconomic developments such as trade wars, geopolitical risk/military tensions, and interest rate changes impact CCPs and the steps taken by participants
  • The potential illiquidity of global markets and the potential impact on CCPs ability to perform. Has systemic risk truly been reduced or simply concentrated through the increased reliance on CCPs?
  • Risk management perspectives on how to measure, manage and mitigate emerging risks. How should margin frameworks including methodologies and assumptions, and stress testing evolve to respond?  
  • Key considerations for risk managers in evaluating CCPs​
  • Default management preparations and evolving best practices.
  • CCP and FMU operational resiliency and the recent efforts to strengthen them.
