Top industry commentary on the EMIR Refit
The seven day notification is a very significant challenge. Fine, if you’re sending 10 swaps a day and one is wrong. If you’re sending 100,000 or 2 million or 10 million messages a day, and quality assurance tells you you’ve got error sets across 5% of it […] That whole operation of the notification process becomes extremely challenging.”
While regulators are trying to converge on the data and the changes, they’re also making a number of the changes in lockstep with one another. Because there is some variation, the challenge becomes a resourcing challenge, because very often the same subject matter experts across the organisation and across the architecture are dealing with these changes.”
We’ve had Brexit since EMIR’s been implemented, which means that there could be some divergence between the EU and the UK regimes. Given that the UK market is one of the largest derivatives markets in the world, the UK may, in the coming months, decide that it wants to change tack. These things do happen when you have politics in the mix.”
We see a lot of exciting developments out there on automatically mapping things with machine learning, on rethinking how the subject matter experts can be involved in these projects at a very technical level, but without having to create technical projects unnecessarily. These things are always very compelling events to revisit architectures and so on.”
One-size-fits-all does not fit in this environment. People that think “oh, I’ve got a very robust cash-management reconciliation solution that’s going to be able to work for derivatives” are going to get a big shock and surprise. There’s nothing like a complex swap to break everybody’s brains and processes at the same time.”
