Confronting the New Order
New regulations and oversight are transforming the OTC derivatives market, adding new levels of complexity and increasing operational risk across the contract lifecycle. Meeting the challenges of managing resources in a more tightly regulated environment is putting increased pressure on asset managers’ in-house capabilities. Participants in the OTC derivatives market must be prepared to meet stringent new requirements - daily operational and reporting obstacles that will demand greater resources and specialized expertise.
