Margin in Derivatives Trading
Discipline: Derivatives & Options
No of pages: 442
Many of the challenges that banks face due to tighter margin requirements are still fresh and, in many cases, without solid industry consensus to guide their resolution. Yet the new margin rules are already in place and, in order to effectively trade in today’s markets, financial institutions must quickly develop a keen understanding of the implications of, and techniques for, trading with large margin requirements. This is therefore a serendipitous time to organise the many strands of margin-related challenges into a coherent framework, and, more importantly, to present the thinking and research on these problems by a collection of leading academics, practitioners and regulators. Margin in Derivatives Trading aims to do just this, and should be of benefit to practitioners, academics and regulators alike.
