2:45 pm - The Australian Clearing Landscape 

Central clearing has always been the foundation of the futures industry. With Australia's implementation of G20 OTC derivatives reforms, the introduction of new global and local regulations and capital pressures means there are increasing burdens on central counterparties, clearing members and other industry participants.  However these developments are also providing growth opportunities in both the listed and OTC derivatives space.  Our panel of industry representatives will discuss how they are operating under these new conditions and their experience in adapting to this ever changing market environment.


  • Bill Herder, Head of Asia-Pacific, FIA

  • Helen Lofthouse, Executive General Manager Derivatives and OTC Markets, ASX

  • Paul Noobergen, Director, Platform Sales, UBS AG

3:45 pm - Networking break

4:15 pm - A World View: External Forces Impacting Australia

There are significant developments taking place in the global financial markets outside of Australia. Global regulatory changes, increasing capital costs, the development of the fintech industry and Brexit just to name a few - what do these external developments mean for the Australian derivatives markets? Our panel will offer a high level view of these developments and assess its implications to the Australian marketplace.
