The panel will include industry specialists such as Brad Ridge, Director of Product Development Asia Pacific at ICAP, George Ng, Head of Energy and Metals Products at Asia, CME Group as well as Keith Noyes, Regional Director, Asia Pacific, ISDA.
The industry panel will discuss how exchange traded and OTC derivatives products are converging and the extent that central clearing and regulated post trade settlement systems will replace traditional OTC markets. The questions likely to be raised include the future role for OTC and exchange traded derivative markets and what are the challenges facing the incumbents in these markets.
âThe panel is also a chance for industry leading figures to come together to discuss the opportunities, risks and technology issues for exchanges and clearing houses entering the OTC market,â said Murray Dyer, Senior Consultant at Trayport. âWe want to find out what our industry needs in relation to how the clearing houses, exchanges, OTC brokers and and traders are changing their business models, and how technology applications need to develop to meet the requirements of greater regulation and converging markets.â
Brad Ridge, Director of Product Development Asia Pacific at ICAP added, âICAP are actively involved in issues surrounding the evolution of derivatives markets worldwide. We believe more recent trends will enhance financial markets by delivering robust clearing and alternative post trade solutions, and the industry will continue to demand further innovations which we are keen to participate in and debate.â
