Time is ticking. Are you ready for the margin rules? 

Do you know what the upcoming Margin Rules mean for your firm? Or what will happen if you do not comply? Are you aware of the data or strategy requirements expected of you? How will you re-paper agreements and manage the process of communicating with all of your counterparties? Attend the webinar to receive all of the answers to these questions. 


From this webinar, you will:

  • Understand the future state, regulations and strategy options
  • Consider which data needs to be gathered for each strategy
  • Learn how to manage the counterparty communication process
  • Know how to easily support renegotiating terms with technology
  • Organize amended agreements for future analysis and reporting

What you need to know: 

  • Understanding the regulation is only the beginning 
  • Renegotiating documents with WGMR specific clauses without a standardized process is risky 
  • Identifying the correct counterparty contact for the outreach stage and retrieving their information on your own is a huge task 
  • We have already prepared a solution process in partnership with one of the big four organizations for preparing agreements, at a rate of thousands of agreements per month
