OTC Derivatives

The swaps market is truly global and requires harmonization of regulatory initiatives across global regulators.

This harmonization is needed on issues including registration, trading, clearing, and pre- and post-trade reporting. Ensuring cross-border cooperation to prevent contradictory and duplicative regulatory oversight in key areas is also necessary, particularly in terms of phase-in, margin requirements for sovereign end-users, clearing, trading and reporting requirements, and registration requirements for foreign boards of trade.
