Public Lecture - Professor Steven L. Schwarcz, Duke University

Location: Room M2 WBS Training Centre

‘Central Clearing of Financial Contracts: Should Regulators Expand its Scope?’

Professor Steven L. Schwarcz, Duke University

Abstract: Prof Schwarcz, the Stanley A. Star Professor of Law & Business at Duke University, will explain why central clearing of derivatives contracts can protect stability by reducing counterparty risk. He then will discuss the regulatory implications for deciding whether to extend central clearing to non-derivative contracts involving systemically important counterparties. The decision is important because the aggregate monetary exposure on non-derivative contracts greatly exceeds that on derivatives contracts.
