The Knowledge Group Has Scheduled a Live Webcast on CFTC Proposed Rule for the Cross Border Application of the Margin Requirements

New York, NY, November 12, 2015 --( The Knowledge Group/The Knowledge Congress Live Webcast Series, the leading producer of regulatory focused webcasts, announced today that it has scheduled a live webcast entitled: CFTC Proposed Rule for the Cross Border Application of the Margin Requirements. This two-hour event is scheduled on January 22, 2016 at 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM ET.

Event Synopsis:

To address the margin requirements for uncleared cross-border swaps not subject to U.S. banking regulations, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) proposed a rule on June 29, 2015. Under the proposed rule, if the duties of a non-US CSE are guaranteed by a US person or if a non-US CSE is a “Foreign Consolidated Subsidiary," then, the non-US covered swap entity (CSE) is obliged to apply the same margin rules for uncleared swaps as a US CSE.

If the rule is adopted as proposed, entities trading with non-US CSEs will be indirectly impacted.

In this two-hour Live Webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders assembled by The Knowledge Group will help companies understand the important aspects of this significant topic. They will provide an in-depth discussion of the proposed rules as well as best practices to mitigate potential compliance risks.

Key topics include:

The Margin Rules – A Legal Primer
Comparative Definitions of U.S. Person
Proposed Rules
CFTC Guidance
SEC Rule
Implications to Covered Swap Entities
Indirect Impact to Financial End Users
Current Regulatory Developments & Compliance Risks
