About This Webinar

With Bilateral Initial Margin regulations impacting almost all sell-side and buy-side players by September 2020, its implications are starting to sink in: an expensive drain on liquidity, challenging implementation hurdles and complexity in modelling its funding cost over the life of the underlying trades.

  • The regulatory context around Bilateral Initial margin and SIMM™
  • Day-1 implementation challenges
  • Quantifying the risk-reduction benefits of Initial Margin: CVA, PFE & Capital
  • Funding costs of Initial Margin: enter Margin Valuation Adjustment (MVA)
  • Review of MVA modelling approaches
