Demonstrate how FpML is constructed by taking a simple trade and translating it into FpML.

12:20 PM Luncheon

1:20 PM Interest Rate Derivatives

Detailed explanation of Interest Rate product specifications, including the most recent additions to the standard. A description of the interest rate swap components covering differences in FpML between fixed and floating legs, inflation swaps, compounding, and others.

During this session we will explain the regulatory framework in FpML. We will focus on key messages and structures, and latest enhancements in versions 5.11 through 5.13. In addition we will cover the latest regulatory reporting developments in the US (CFTC reporting rules rewrite), the EU (EMIR Refit) and international developments such as the work from CPMI-IOSCO on Critical Data Elements.

4:20 PM Overview of CDM and DRR

During this session we will give an introduction of the Common Domain Model (CDM) and ISDA’s Digital Regulatory Reporting Initiative (DRR). DRR provides a comprehensive solution for translating amended rules into machine-executable open-source code. This allows financial firms to access a standardized interpretation of the requirements and integrate them directly into their systems, streamlining their regulatory reporting processes and reducing the risk of compliance errors.
