Developing Repo Central Clearing Opportunities


As regulatory measures seeking to tighten capital rules and improve bank resiliency are implemented, will increased central clearing of repo provide relief from the resulting pressure on dealers' balance sheets?

Does improving balance sheet netting through central clearing in the Canadian repo market ultimately require a wider set of participants, including pension funds, asset managers and insurance companies, in a centrally-cleared model?

Can an optimal model be identified to increase central clearing, thus ensuring that repo markets remain effective funding tools even during times of stress?

Our panel examines balance sheet management, industry trends, the costs and benefits of a sponsored clearing model, as well as the CAD market’s readiness for a sponsored repo-clearing market model.

Strategy Sparring Session


Fixed income strategists work as members of the quantitative analysis and research teams found at major banks. This role is focused on developing the analytical tools required to determine high-value trades. The goal is to help managers and traders manage bond portfolios effectively. The role also serves as a key link between trading and sales, between economists and forecasters. It is, in essence, where ideas and predictions are thoughtfully considered and fine-tuned for delivery to an audience that is looking for answers.

The MX continues its series of strategy sessions with two new title contenders! Always engaging, thought-provoking and entertaining, these sessions have professional debaters face off to see who will take the belt as CADC’s top strategist….

Robert Catani, TMX Group
Speakers:
