Leading buy-side figures will headline The TRADE’s “Future of Post Trade” event on the 22 May, as issues around central clearing, collateral management and trade reporting will impact trading processes.

With the future of euro-denominated central clearing being fought between London and Brussels, buy-side relationships with their banks and CCPs could be significantly impacted.

A panel featuring Old Mutual’s Ricky Maloney, business manager for rates and LDI, and Aviva Investors’ Barry Hadingham, head of derivatives and counterparty risk, will join Bill Stenning, managing director for clearing, regulatory and strategic affairs at Societe Generale, to discuss the next stage in central clearing.

As a result of capital costs and regulatory pressures, the panel will discuss what this means for pricing, the adoption of voluntary cleared products, and what the battle for euro derivatives clearing will mean for the buy-side.

With the onset of the initial and variation margin rules for uncleared derivatives globally, collateral management processes have become regulated for the very first time.

With Saheed Awan, former global head of collateral management at Euroclear, as a guest moderator, he will be joined by Mark Persiani, vice president of derivatives operations for BlackRock, Tim Harris, head of alternatives and derivatives operations at Hermes Investment Management, and Philip Whitehurst, product development, SwapClear at LCH, looking into the impact the rules have had for the buy-side, and will outsourcing be the answer in achieving collateral management efficiencies.

The final panel will delve into trade reporting and the changes firms will have to make to their reporting processes to comply with EMIR and MiFID II. Joining the panel will be Per Loven, commercial director for TRADEcho, Elena Gaetini, European head of business development and governmental affairs for RegTek.Solutions, Len Delicaet, commercial manager at TRAX, and Alexandra Foster, head of insurance and finance sector & post trade services for BT.
