Print Agenda 2021 ISDA Asia-Pacific Conference for

9:00 AM Opening Remarks

9:10 AM Keynote Address

A senior Asia-Pacific policy-maker will set out the policy agenda for the rest of 2021 and into 2022.

9:30 AM Approaching the Finishing Line

With a matter of weeks until 30 LIBOR settings either cease or become non-representative, what’s left for market participants to do? To what extent have firms adopted alternative benchmarks, and how have institutions dealt with legacy LIBOR exposures? What exactly will happen on January 3, 2022, and how important will fallbacks ultimately be?

10:15 AM Break

10:25 AM Chairman Remarks

10:35 AM Netting and Beyond

China is moving forward with its draft Futures Law, while India last year passed the Bilateral Netting of Qualified Financial Instruments Act 2020 – both of which ensure the enforceability of close-out netting. What impact will these changes have on local derivatives markets, and what other developments are necessary to further advance domestic capital markets?

11:20 AM Standardize and Digitize

ISDA’s first natively digital definitions – the 2021 ISDA Interest Rate Derivatives Definitions – will come into effect in early October. What impact will this have on the interest rate derivatives market, and what’s the next step in the shift to digital legal documents and definitions for derivatives? What is needed to fully automate the derivatives trade lifecycle?

12:00 PM Break

12:10 PM Keynote Address

A senior regulator in Asia-Pacific will outline forthcoming regulatory priorities.

12:30 PM Building a Sustainable Economy

With the COP26 summit likely to result in new climate commitments, the importance of sustainable finance and ESG-linked investments and derivatives will continue to increase. How are regulations in Asia-Pacific adapting in response and what industry initiatives are under way to document, standardize and support this market? What progress is being made in modelling climate risk?

1:10 PM Conference Concludes

Agenda is subject to change.
