This webinar discussed end user swap compliance issues from the
perspective of the International Swaps and Derivatives
Association's (ISDA) general counsel for the Americas and lawyers
from our New York and London offices.
Title VII of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer
Protection Act (Dodd-Frank) substantially revamped the US
regulatory landscape for the over-the-counter derivatives markets.
Many regulations implementing Title VII have become effective, and
end-users (including corporations, energy companies, insurance
companies, investment funds, securitization vehicles, health care
providers, universities, and others) must take action promptly to
preserve seamless swap trading with dealer counterparties after
Our panel provided insights into the most pressing compliance
issues for US and non-US end-users, including the Commodity Futures
Trading Commission's external business conduct rule, the "legal
entity identifier" and the ISDA August 2012 Dodd-Frank Protocol,
among others. The panel also addressed Dodd-Frank strategies for
non-US end-users facing US swap dealers.
