LONDON / NEW YORK / SYDNEY / HONG KONG, 23 January 2022 – Cassini Systems, the leading provider of pre-and post-trade margin and collateral analytics for derivatives market participants, in collaboration with Danske Bank, Eurex, and SimCorp, is hosting the 2023 Copenhagen Derivatives Breakfast Briefing. This dedicated workshop will take place on February 1st and will focus on ‘New Strategies for Collateral Resilience: Rethinking Alpha Generation and Collateral’s Impact on The Front Office.’
For the broader buy-side, including pension funds, hedge funds, and asset managers, collateral resiliency is more important than ever as continued market volatility and increasing regulations challenge outdated resilience strategies.
New technology has made it possible for firms to understand margin drivers intraday — not just end-of-day — and across the entire lifecycle of a trade. However, some firms still hold onto legacy technology that fails to provide this level of transparency.
At the event, experts from across the industry will provide an in-depth look into these critical challenges facing today’s market. A large portion of the event will focus on the potential solutions designed to bring greater capital and operational efficiency to the shifting regulatory landscape. This collaborative effort to explore various solutions, from new technology to updated trading strategies, indicates firms’ preoccupation with collateral resiliency in the face of continued market stressors.
Thomas Griffiths, Head of Product at Cassini, said: “The Copenhagen Breakfast Briefing is an opportunity for Pension Funds, Hedge Funds, and Asset Managers to gather and discuss the real challenges the buy-side industry faces, including the need to rethink alpha-generating strategies in times of market stress. If one thing is true about this industry, success depends on your ability to plan and adapt. Huge changes to the market landscape can take place overnight; without the proper tools to support your efforts, you will be fighting a losing battle.”
As 2023 inevitably presents new challenges for the market, more firms will need to strengthen their collateral resiliency by integrating new, innovative strategies that account for today’s shifting landscape. The insights from this breakfast briefing could hold the key to continued collateral resilience for firms looking to not only survive but thrive in today’s unstable conditions.
The Breakfast Briefing will take place on Wednesday, 1 February 2023, from 08:00 – 10:30 (CET). To register for the event, click here.
