Changes in margin rules and SEC and CFTC regulations will be highlighted. LegalTech and FinTech opportunities and trends related to derivatives, including blockchain, distributed ledgers, smart contracts and best practices in documentation projects, will be covered, including ISDA-Create IM, the online process to agree and produce initial margin documentation and create valuable structured legal data One hour of ethics credit related to compliance with new derivatives and structured products regulations will also be available.
