OTC derivatives reforms: The state of play

A speech by Greg Medcraft, Chairman, Australian Securities and Investments Commission to the Markit Customer Conference 2014, 28 October 2014


I’d like to spend a few minutes today talking about:

  • how the current wave of regulation in the over-the-counter (OTC) derivatives space came about
  • Australia’s implementation of OTC derivatives reforms in the areas of:
    • trade reporting
    • mandatory clearing
    • mandatory trading, and
    • margining requirements, and
  • work to address the cross-border implications of OTC derivative reform in the areas of:
    • international standard setting, and
    • implementation, surveillance and enforcement.
