Webinar on the Financial Stability Board’s Policy Framework for Securities Lending and Repo
ICI Global hosted a webinar on 7 December on the recent consultative document published by the Financial Stability Board (FSB) setting out a proposed policy framework for addressing Shadow Banking Risks in Securities Lending and Repos. Officials from the UK Financial Services Authority, the FSB, and the Federal Reserve who have been deeply involved in the production of the policy framework provided their insights on the proposed framework and what it means for industry participants engaging in securities lending and repo transactions. Panellists also included representatives from ICI Global’s Securities Lending and Repo Committee who discussed the FSB’s recommendations in respect of transparency and data collection, proposals in respect of margins and haircuts, and the use of collateral including its valuation and management.
The webinar addressed the following topics:
- The significance of the FSB's proposals for participants in securities lending and repo transactions
- The likely future obligations arising from the implementation of the proposals into national and regional regulatory regimes
- Next steps and the way in which industry participants can influence the development of the FSB's proposals
