Counterparty Risk and Margin Requirements

Enhance your understanding of CCP risk management, collateral management, and the impact of the final stages of initial margin.

This four-day virtual training course will explore how CCPs navigate their risk management frameworks and practices in times of volatility. Sessions will focus on collateral management and optimisation, mitigating counterparty credit risk exposure, differing liquidity risk profiles and the impact of new margin requirements on traditional trading models. 

Participants will be able to connect with expert speakers to discuss typical onboarding challenges of initial margin requirements and methods to prevent procyclicality.  

Dedicated sessions on best practices for preparing for the final stages of initial margin and the ISDA SIMM model implementation will develop participants understanding of the risks, challenges and opportunities presented during the phase-in.  

Each 60-minute live session allows participants maximum engagement with the detailed content, as well as the opportunity to interact with speakers through live Q&A and polls.
