The Moment You’ve All Been Waiting For*

The International Swaps and Derivatives Association, ISDA, has now officially released my Discussion Paper on central clearing of derivatives.  (This is what I’ve been referring to as my white paper.)  It is the inaugural paper in the ISDA Discussion Paper series.

The link to the press release is here, and the press release contains a link to the PDF.

Any comments would be appreciated.  The paper focuses on most of the hot button issues relating to clearing, and to many of the pending regulatory issues.  Hopefully it will contribute constructively to policy, and more broadly to understanding of the issue.

I’m grateful to ISDA, and in particular ISDA CEO Conrad Voldstad, for providing this opportunity and this platform.  I also appreciate the insights and input of David Murphy, ISDA’s Global Head of Risk and Research.

*Said tongue in cheek, of course.

  3. @Deus Ex (sounds like the Zeus’s former wife:) We could, but then I’m afraid I’d have to kill you. Generous sort that I am, I’ll give you the option!
