ISDA Briefing Paper on Post-trade Risk Reduction

On March 22, 2023, ISDA published a briefing paper on post-trade risk reduction (PTRR), which explains how these services would significantly strengthen the resilience and competitiveness of Europe’s derivatives market if fully deployed. The paper highlights how the benefits of PTRR services are restricted by the clearing obligation under the European Market Infrastructure Regulation (EMIR) and outlines the conditions under which non-price forming output transactions that result from PTRR exercises should benefit from a derogation from the EMIR clearing obligation. These conditions would ensure the derogation could not be used to evade clearing. ISDA also recommends that policymakers use the current EMIR proposal to introduce such a derogation, which would be in line with the recommendations made by the European Securities and Markets Authority in 2020.
