Description:

Once a derivative trade has been executed, middle- and back- office functions have always supported the trade capture and booking, confirmation, P&S, clearing and settlement of the trade.

As the financial industry undergoes a seismic shift in derivatives operations because of regulatory changes such as the Dodd-Frank Act, it has become more important than ever to understand what exactly are the functions performed after the trade execution and how, if not performed with stringent controls in place, can result in substantial cost and risk to industry participants.

This one-day course takes you "behind the scenes" to explore how brokers and investors on the buy-side and sell-side of the industry perform these functions for both listed and OTC derivatives. Participants will explore the functional building blocks of middle and back office operations that support trade lifecycle activity, from the inception of an order or request for quote (RFQ) through clearance and settlement of payments.

The infrastructure or "plumbing" that links together these functions, and the points of failure representing operational risk will be highlighted throughout the program. Particular attention is paid to the lifecycle of both a cleared and uncleared swap.

After the course you will be able to:

  • Analyze the functional building blocks of the trade for account set-up, client on-boarding, master agreements, confirmation, clearing and settlement, and collateral management
  • Identify the participants and their roles, including the investment managers, end-users, swap dealers, FCM's, interdealer brokers, exchanges and SEF's (Swap Execution Facilities), clearing houses and CCP systems, custodians and prime brokers
  • Explain the links and plumbing that connect industry participants in the trade lifecycle, including standards and protocols and books and records systems
  • Distinguish the role of clearinghouses and CCP systems
  • Analyze the collateral management process in mitigating counterparty credit risk
  • Understand protections in place for customer collateral and assets
  • Be able to explain why novations are done and how they are processed
  • Consider throughout the program, the impact of industry regulatory changes, such as Dodd Frank regulation on derivative trade processing
Class Size: Registration is limited to approximately 15 participants to promote student participation and interaction.
