The upcoming margin rules for over the counter (OTC) derivatives, which are arguably the most significant of the derivative risk mitigation rules to be implemented since the financial crisis, require certain entities to exchange collateral in respect of their uncleared OTC derivatives. Under these new rules, private equity, real estate, pension, infrastructure and microfinance funds may face substantial new requirements.
