Markets Disrupted – Rethinking Risk, Regulations and Post Trade

Markets Disrupted – Rethinking Risk, Regulations and Post Trade

The disruption has begun. Unforseen events such as Brexit in 2016 and the unexpected Trump win have thrown global markets into a spiral of uncertainty. For risk managers, these unforeseen events means that banks will need to shift their attention towards moving from a historic Value at Risk (VAR) based testing towards more forward looking scenario analysis. For regulations, the commitment to move forward with expensive implementations of Fundamental Review of the Trading Book (FRTB) and Margin Reform is being questioned. Finally the advent of disruptive technology opens a whole new world in financial markets. Peer-to-peer (P2P) platforms where buyside institutions can start making markets, cloud technology where banks can adopt leaner 'plug and pay' solutions and distributed ledgers which will see the imminent collapse of trade date and settlement date into a matter of minutes.

Key focus areas:

 

Market Access: Are infrastructures such as triparty platforms, exchanges and central clearing parties the solution to overcoming fragmented regional markets?

 

Rethinking investments and markets strategy in a new uncertain world ahead?

 

An overhauling of historic risk based modeling and a move towards forecasting black swans

 

Fundamental Review of Trading Book: Is it worth the time and cost of implementing?

 

From Enterprise to Cloud based solutions and multi systems to Blockchain: Can this vision translate to reality?

 

Disintermediation: What do Peer-to-peer (P2P) platforms, buyside market makers and prime of prime models mean for banks?
