The EMSA recommendation of a one-year delay to MiFID compliance has done little to stem the ongoing flood of concern about trade reporting. While attendees at two key London conferences in December agreed that while project delays at their firms are likely, it was accepted that the regulatory programme would inevitably move forward.
On October 8, 2015, I had the pleasure of being on the dais for a panel discussion on “Reporting Regulations & Derivatives” at the Derivatives World Congress, bright and early in Chicago the morning after the Cubs beat the Pirates to advance to the NL Division Series against the Cardinals.
Needless to say, all of the locals in attendance were bleary-eyed and/or hung over. Yet, we kept the audience awake and engaged.
Risk Focus attended the premier Derivatives Regulatory Reporting conference of 2014 in London from June 17-18. The conference covered many significant challenges posed by financial institutions related to derivatives trade reporting in compliance with Dodd-Frank, EMIR and other jurisdictions.
