The Impact on pension funds of a mandatory clearing regime for OTC derivatives

september 2012

On 15 September 2010, two years after the collapse of Lehman Brothers, the European Commission published a draft Regulation for the OTC derivatives markets (Regulation). This Regulation is expected to come into force with immediate effect in August 2012, with no additional EU Member States legislation being needed. The Regulation will change the regulatory framework of OTC derivatives and the way OTC derivatives markets operate.
