||View Dates And Locations For This Seminar
Once a derivative trade has been executed, middle- and back- office functions have always supported the trade capture and booking, confirmation, P&S, clearing and settlement of the trade.
As the financial industry undergoes a seismic shift in derivatives operations because of regulatory changes such as the Dodd-Frank Act, it has become more important than ever to understand what exactly are the functions performed after the trade execution and how, if not performed with stringent controls in place, can result in substantial cost and risk to industry participants.
This one-day course takes you "behind the scenes" to explore how brokers and investors on the buy-side and sell-side of the industry perform these functions for both listed and OTC derivatives. Participants will explore the functional building blocks of middle and back office operations that support trade lifecycle activity, from the inception of an order or request for quote (RFQ) through clearance and settlement of payments.
The infrastructure or "plumbing" that links together these functions, and the points of failure representing operational risk will be highlighted throughout the program. Particular attention is paid to the lifecycle of both a cleared and uncleared swap.
After the course you will be able to:
