Clearing in a Day Frankfurt

15 September 2015 9:00am to 4:30pm BST
Alte Börse, Börsenplatz 4, 60313 Frankfurt am Main, Germany

Clearing in a Day - Frankfurt is now sold out.  If interested in attending please contact Bernadette Connolly and we can add your name to a waiting list should places become available.

We are pleased to announce the German edition of FIA Europe’ successful educational series: 'Clearing in a Day’.

Central clearing of OTC derivatives transactions has been at the forefront of the reform of financial markets globally since the G20 commitments were announced after the 2009 Pittsburg summit. Much has been implemented since then but a lot of work continues to take place in order to achieve those G20 goals of establishing safer, more efficient and transparent markets, with clearing central to that quest.

Who Attends?

Today, everybody needs to understand the role of clearing in the transaction chain. FIA Europe’s Clearing In a Day – an introduction to derivatives clearing - will provide essential insight for anyone involved in this area of the derivatives market, whether in an operations, compliance, legal, regulatory or other capacity, on the sell side as well as the buy side. If you have staff who need to get to grips with clearing, this event will deliver an invaluable overview.

Presentations will be given by leading industry experts in German.
