Chatham Financial to Host Global Webinar on Dodd-Frank and EMIR Compliance Obligations for Derivatives End Users

On Tuesday, April 23, 2013 at 3 p.m. BST (10 a.m. ET) Chatham Financial will host a webinar discussing the new regulations governing the use of OTC derivatives in the United States and Europe. Partnering with Chatham Financial will be Richard Raeburn, chairman of the European Association of Corporate Treasurers (EACT), and Tom Deas, chairman of the National Association of Corporate Treasurers (NACT) and vice president and treasurer of FMC Corporation.

The webinar will focus on key compliance obligations for end users under Dodd-Frank and the European Market Infrastructure Regulation (EMIR) and will look specifically at the application of Dodd-Frank and EMIR regulations to cross-border transactions. There will also be a review of regulatory incentives and how they may impact hedging strategies.

Registration for the webinar is free and can be completed at this link.

“These new requirements, dictated by both Dodd-Frank and EMIR, are only the first of several that will create new and potentially overlapping compliance obligations for end users whose treasury activities cross the Atlantic,” said the EACT’s Raeburn.

“Treasurers are responsible for safeguarding their companies’ cash and moving it from where it’s generated to where it’s needed, often across several international borders. They not only have to manage counterparty risks and risks from the movements of currency and interest rates, but now an increasingly complex web of global regulations,” said the NACT’s Deas.

Leading the discussion, Luke Zubrod and Ryan McKee from Chatham Financial’s Derivatives Regulatory Advisory team will focus on the intricacies of the cross border requirements. “As companies seek to navigate the regulatory complexities associated now with cross border transactions, we want to provide clear direction on compliance obligations and enable understanding of the economic impact of their decisions,” said Zubrod, director of Regulatory Advisory.
