Global Financial Markets

New Rules on Market Structure, Trading and Funding

Chatham House, London

More than five years after the financial crisis, now is an opportune time to reflect on the implementation of the major pieces of regulation being embedded nationally, regionally and globally, and to consider the likely effects on financial markets.

Focusing on current and planned reforms to market structure, trading practices, and non-bank credit intermediation activities, this conference will ask what kind of policies and processes will provide regulatory and supervisory clarity and coherence.

  • How will market players adjust their business models and strategies to the new regulatory environment and how will end users be affected? 
  • To what extent will there be global cooperation on regulation? 
  • Will adequate liquidity and diversity remain for the efficient functioning of global financial markets?

Questions and discussion (under the Chatham House Rule)

Session One
Market Structure and Transparency

  • What steps are being taken in the EU and the US to make markets more transparent? Which market sectors will this affect and how?

  • What effect will new rules on collateral and liquidity requirements have on market liquidity?

  • What will be the impacts of policymakers’ moves to drive trading onto venues?

  • Will global regulators classify large funds as systemically important financial institutions (SIFIs) in order to set limits to capital, leverage and liquidity?

  • What are prospects for global regulatory co-operation?

Arlene McCarthy MEP, Vice Chair, Committee on Economic and Monetary Affairs

David Wright, Secretary General, International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO)

Steven Maijoor, Chairman, European Securities and Markets Authority

Guus Warringa, Chief Legal Counsel and Member of the Board, APG

Questions and discussion

Session Two
Derivatives and Market Infrastructure

  • What are the implications of the US-EU agreement on rules for trading over-the-counter derivatives?

  • Dodd-Frank and EMIR impose collateral requirements on OTC derivatives, and the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision and the International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO) propose margin requirements.  To what extent will there be global co-ordination on collateral and margins? What impact will proposed rules have on business models?

  • Are clearing houses now ‘too big to fail’? How should clearing houses be capitalized and should clearing funds be structured to ensure market continuity or rapid resolution?

  • Will ‘Footnote 88’ to US derivatives trading rules split liquidity between the EU and the US?

15:00-15:30 Refreshments

Session Four
Non-bank Funding: Regulating for Diversity and Stability

  • How have policymakers defined non-bank credit intermediation, and measured its contribution to the economy and the risk it poses; and how do they propose to integrate rules on its many aspects?

  • How will regulators know when dangerous amounts of leverage are occurring?

  • Will national regulators adopt the Financial Stability Board’s proposals for rules on securities lending and ‘repo’ markets? What steps are proposed for rules to strengthen the framework for securitization?
