Clearing houses and exchanges are vital to managing counterparty risk. In recent years a lot of attention has been focused on the subject of post trade environment - clearing and settlement.

This informative and easy to follow one day course, has been specially designed to explain how the clearing and settlement process works for derivatives and securities, demonstrating how banks and their clients manage their counterparty risk - which is particularly important in the post financial era. The course also shows in some detail, how the margining system allows for the netting of risk and the effective management of collateral.

By the end of this course you will be able to:

  • Understand the significance of counterparty risk – especially post financial crisis
  • Explain the role and function of the central clearing counterparty (CCP)
  • Illustrate the relationship between clearing members and clients and show how different types of client accounts can be set up and managed
  • Demonstrate how CCPs and central security depositories (CSDs) interact
  • Understand how CCPs are structured and explain their “lines of defence”
  • Explore how listed derivatives v OTC derivatives are collateralised and cleared
  • Show how the margining system works for futures and options and other derivatives like swaps compared with bonds and equities
  •  the benefit of portfolio based margining systems like SPAN and VaR margining methodology
