TOPIC: A Primer on Clearing OTC Derivatives: A Buyside Blueprint for Implementation
On June 10, 2013, many buyside firms will be required to clear over-the-counter derivatives. Although firms have been actively engaged in preparing for the deadline, many have not been as vigilant, subjecting themselves to a mad scramble to get ready.
This presentation will provide an overview to the various steps and efforts for a firm to be ready to clear OTC derivatives. The discussion will highlight and provide a checklist to properly prepare a firm for the transition to OTC derivative clearing.

SPEAKER: Christian Johnson, Professor of Law at The University of Utah College of Law
An academic, scholar and consultant on over-the-counter derivatives, Professor Johnson is working with large firms as they prepare for clearing OTC derivatives.
