The European Market Infrastructure Regulation (EMIR) has been more than five years in the making and promises to reshape the global financial services landscape. Yet the industry is still grappling with the new requirements, including timely confirmations, portfolio reconciliation and trade reporting. Less Than a Third of Asset Managers are prepared for EMIR with regulatory pressure on the increase, the entire financial industry is seemingly on tenterhooks to see just how these new directives from EMIR to MiFID II, Basel III to Dodd Frank, will pan out. The result of this uncertainty is a lack of preparation among investment professionals. The aim of this workshop is to solve this problem.

This training will give delegates a practical understanding of Derivatives and EMIR regulation. EMIR is the new European legislation for derivatives transactions. In response to the credit crisis in 2008 and the bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers, the political leaders of the G-20 set the objective to make trade and risks in OTC derivatives more transparent and to let settlement partially bound to take place through central counterparties. In the EU, the European Market Infrastructure Regulation (EMIR) is the result. The purpose of EMIR is making the market safer and more transparent by reducing counterparty, operational and systemic risks related to OTC derivative transactions.
