OTC Derivatives Regulation & SEFs
Are your systems set up – cost effectively – to ensure compliance in the new OTC derivatives trading regulations environment? IPC’s suite of services can simplify both connectivity and recording capabilities needed to meet changing regulations across the trade lifecycle.
As new regulations go into place, trading firms need to change the way they trade OTC derivatives.
