Corporate end users dodged the swap clearing and margin requirements levied on financial firms that followed the 2008 financial crisis. However, they soon must abide by what may prove to be a tedious requirement for some companies if they want to continue trading over-the-counter (OTC) derivatives. That’s according to a Chatham Financial executive at The NeuGroup’s November Treasurers’ Group of Thirty (T30) meeting hosted by the Kennett Square, PA-based derivative advisory firm. “Given the complexity of trading relationships and regime-specific regulations, these determinations could be quite difficult to make if left to the counterparties without a foundational framework to work with,” said Ankur Patel, director of corporate regulatory advisory at Chatham Financial.
