Global Financial Markets Initiative Teleconference: End Users Hedging with OTC Energy Derivatives
Title VII of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act introduces a new regulatory regime for OTC derivatives. This will have a wide ranging impact on US transportation companies, utilities, manufacturers, energy producers and other businesses actively hedging their exposure to fluctuating energy prices.
On September 16, Paul Forrester and Margaret Davis will be providing an overview of the new regime and its potential impact on end users hedging with energy derivatives including:
- Who will qualify for the "end user" exemption?
- Who is a "swap dealer" or a "major swap participant"?
- What is the regulatory timeline for implementation of Title VII of Dodd-Frank?
Thursday, September 16, 2010 - 10:00 a.m. - 10:30 a.m. CDT
More information, including registration, is available on the Mayer Brown website.
