BIS group to work on settlement delays
14 Feb 2006, Alexander Campbell, Risk magazine
The BIS Committee on Payment and Settlement Systems, composed of major central banks, said that the group would include committee members and representatives of derivatives watchdogs.
Since the BIS last reported on OTC derivative settlement in 1998, the notional size of the market has more than tripled, and delays in settlement have attracted increasing criticism from regulators.
The group's report is due in the first half of 2007.
