AIMA APAC invites you to join our webinar on 30 July 2020

Some industry estimates suggest that new UMR requirements for IM will bring as many as 300 firms into scope in 2021 and another 700 in 2022.  It is essential that firms understand and prepare for both the calculation and exchange of initial margin.

Our panel will discuss key topics to help you determine if you’re captured by the requirements and if you are, how to successfully navigate the implications for your business.

The discussion will include the following:

  • Background and overview of rules
  • Key UMR challenges
  • How to deliver a successful IM project
