UMR Phase 6 will see a significant proportion of the funds industry across jurisdictions becoming subject to legally complex and operationally burdensome initial margin rules

Will Winterton and Gregory Chartier will be joined by Neil Murphy from TriOptima to discuss Phase 6 of Uncleared Margin Rules (UMR) for users of uncleared OTC derivatives. They will outline a practical roadmap for managers to achieve compliance by the September 2022 deadline. Will and Gregory will address the key legal considerations, including available exemptions, the negotiation of documentation and the implementation timeline. Neil will address the key operational considerations, including the distinction between monitoring and margining and using ISDA SIMM as your model for IM calculations.

European Perspectives Series | Data exposure knows no borders: trends and challenges across Europe (6 October 2021)

Three years on from the introduction of GDPR, the European Court of Justice (ECJ) is expected to introduce a rule on materiality threshold on data breaches, while the EU will be introducing a new directive on representative action and regulations on class action.

With data litigation likely to be on the rise as a result, a team of Clifford Chance lawyers will be delivering a Webinar on the topic on 6th October, 16:00 CET.

During the session they will discuss:

  • the role of the ECJ in strengthening data protection;
  • the different approaches to class action regulations across EU jurisdictions;
  • the impact that the European trend has on the US; and
  • some of the key drivers for data litigation, including cyber incidents

If you are a client of the firm and would like to attend, please contact the European Perspectives team.
