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.
