There is limited customization available on Eris contractsMargin Efficiency Swap FuturesThe minimum VaR calculation for futures contracts is 1 day, compared to5 days for cleared swapsRegulatory Status Swap FuturesTrading swap futures is a known regulatory and reporting framework thatwill not require additional registrationStatus Quo SwapsIf regulations prove less onerous than expected, then the swaps marketwill likely continue largely as it is todaySource: CME, LCH, TABB Group

  18. 18. Q & A18When the clearing mandate goes live in March, Derivatives Clearing Organizations (DCOs), Futures CommissionMerchants (FCMs) and clearing brokers must be able to accept trades for clearing within just one minute ofsubmission. The goal is to create a market in which clicking “execute” completes the trade entirely. A moreautomated and real-time clearing workflow will allow the market to more accurately manage risk and, by doingso, better deploy capital. But the path to this environment will require a technology investment by swapsdealers, FCMs and the clearinghouses themselvesReal Time Clearing: The New Race to ZeroAuthor: Will RhodeRelevant Recent Research from TABB Fixed IncomeDeath of a SEF – The Coroner’s ReportAuthor: Adam SussmanSwap Execution Facilities (SEFs) have a problem: They have the same amount of regulatory burdens asexchanges but control a narrower slice of the derivatives market, and they largely will depend on the survival ofthe status quo. There are multiple scenarios in which the SEF is made obsolete. In contrast, DesignatedContract Markets (DCMs) benefit if the markets move to an exchange-like model and, at the same time, a DCMcan allow many of the existing swaps processes to survive under a futures model. This is the confidence trick ofDodd-Frank..This report builds on TABB’s initial Global Risk Transfer Market report, published in November 2010, exploringthe ongoing battle between the status quo and the transformation of the global derivatives market as well aswhere various components of the market ecosystem are in their development and implementation cycles. Thereport focuses on the primary issues in swaps today -- including clearing, margin, collateral, automated tradingsolutions, trading costs, trade reporting and repositories, and extraterritoriality -- with an eye toward juxtaposingthem with exchange-traded derivatives markets.The New Global Risk Transfer Model – Transformation and the Status QuoAuthor: Paul RowadyUS Buy-Side Swaps Trading 2012: I Can See Clearing NowAuthor: Will RhodeThis study is based on conversations with 31 buy-side firms, including asset managers, hedge funds, regionalbanks and insurance companies.
