KEYNOTE: A future for Clearing?

CentralCounterParty (CCP) clearers are part of the epicenter of financial market transformation; as driven by new regulations, merger attempts, Brexit, and new technologies. Short term-changes may be overestimated, whereas the impact of longer term trends are underestimated (such as the effects of new technologies and risk modelling approaches).

CCP-clearing was singled out as one of the pillars for a safer financial system, by the regulators that set-out to heal the sector in the wake of the financial crisis, but with the growth of CCPs comes also increased oversight and obligations. How have CCPs stepped up to their new responsibilities, and what remains to be done in the short to medium term, for them to be value-contributing financial market assurers?
