The Great Balancing Act: A Discussion about the Interplay Between UMR and SA-CCR

Over the last decade, global regulators have introduced several measures in the OTC derivatives market designed to increase financial market resiliency and mitigate counterparty credit risk – mandatory clearing, reconciliation and reporting, and uncleared margin rules, to name a few examples. The goal of these measures is to reduce counterparty risk, increase marketplace transparency, and prevent contagion.

The adoption of SA-CCR – standardized approach to counterparty credit risk – is the most recent measure to come to market. Join a panel of experts as they discuss challenges and solutions for optimizing for UMR and SA-CCR requirements in ways that can help reduce initial margin funding costs.
