On Monday, February 13, Fordham University Corporate Law Center presents Regulation of Over-the-Counter Derivatives. It will be held in the Lowenstein Building at 114 West 60th Street in Manhattan.

The program starts at 9:00 a.m. and ends at 12:30 p.m.

The seminar will examine the new regulations imposed on OCT derivatives in light of the Dodd-Frank Act. Panelists will examine the efforts of the SEC, CFTC and other regulatory agencies to eliminate bilateral derivatives trading and move derivatives trading onto centralized clearinghouses and exchanges. New legislation seeks to centralize counterparty credit risk and to increase the transparency and efficiency of the OTC derivatives market. Benefits and drawbacks to this new legislation will be discussed and examined by leading scholars and practitioners.

The keynote address will be delivered by Conrad Voldstad, immediate past president, ISDA, and founding principal, Arlington Hill Investment Management, LLC. The panelists are Jeffrey Golden, visiting professor, London School of Economics; Sharon Brown-Hruska, vice president, National Economic Research Associates; Michael Greenberger, professor and director, Center for Health and Homeland Security, University of Maryland School of Law; and John Williams, Allen & Overy LLP.
