For market participants who will be or anticipate becoming subject to initial margin (“IM”) exchange requirements under the uncleared margin rules in 2021 (Phase 5) and beyond, and their advisors, this conference will provide delegates with an overview from both the US an EU perspectives of the IM regulatory requirements. It will also provide delegates with an understanding of ISDA’s new IM credit support documentation and implications of various elections under the documentation in negotiations between counterparties, as well as introduce delegates to documentation that can be used for IM arrangements between custodians and trading counterparties in different jurisdictions, including specific documents designed for use where the IM is held in a Euroclear or Clearstream account. The conference will also examine key points to consider when entering into custodial relationships related to compliance with initial margin requirements.
