Compliance without compromising hedging

OTC derivatives continue to evolve in this era of financial regulatory reform. Dodd-Frank and EMIR regulation are now actively enforced. These new standards have increased complexity and rigor for real estate companies. They must manage derivative-related documentation, policies and resolutions, as well as risk management operations.

While the changes in effect today present one set of challenges, continued adjustments in the rules further complicate the compliance process. This demands a watchful eye and sharp navigation skills.
