Extraterritoriality in International Derivatives Regulation

5.25 CPD Credit Hours Available (England and Wales) 

6 CLE Credit Hours Available (New York)
Transitional and Nontransitional

Thursday, September 7, 2017
One Bishops Square


Regulators’ efforts to implement the 2009 G-20 commitments continue. Whilst significant progress has been made in the derivatives-related undertakings agreed at the Pittsburgh summit (e.g. clearing, reporting, and execution), one undertaking that has proved troublesome is the commitment to avoid ‘fragmentation of markets, protectionism and regulatory arbitrage’, at least in derivatives regulation. Differing implementation timetables, ambiguity, and in some cases, the intrusiveness of the territorial scope of major regulators’ responses to the G-20 mandates have led to uncertainty in the market place, with industry participants grappling with the practical consequences. This conference, bringing together experts in different derivatives fields, will assess the causes, consequences and eventual solutions to these extraterritorial tensions.
