10:20 AM Morning Break

10:40 AM Incentives for Clearing Steven Kennedy

Regulations such as margin rules for non-cleared derivatives have been explicitly calibrated to encourage a shift to clearing. Market participants need to be aware of and prepared for the implementation of these rules.  But at the same time, with clearing activity globally running ahead of the mandates, is it time to assess whether those incentives are set at the right level? How is clearing progressing in Asia-Pacific?

Steven Kennedy, Global Head of Public Policy, ISDA

11:30 AM Gearing up for Benchmark Reform Moderator: Katherine Darras, Michael Gill, Jing Gu, Axel van Nederveen

The transition from the IBORs to risk-free rates will have ripple effects across global derivatives, bond and loan markets. This panel will discuss the impact on Asia-Pacific, the steps that need to be taken and the possible solutions, drawing on the results of ISDA’s new global IBOR transition survey. The panel will also discuss progress made in identifying and applying robust fallbacks.
