The Impact of Regulatory Developments on the ETD Industry
Regional and global regulatory developments have greatly impacted the exchange traded derivatives industry in recent years. Coupled with global macro-economic and geopolitical issues, industry participants are constantly having to adapt to an ever-changing environment. Join our panel of experts as they share their views on key developments and topical issues, and provide insights on regulatory trends.
The Next Chapter in Market Technology?
The ETD market is built on a web of technology providing specific solutions that connect key functions through the life-cycle of a trade, from pre-trade risk and execution through to collateral management and clearing. This panel will consider how current trends, such as the growing adoption of cloud computing by exchanges, the use of AI and the streamlining of post-trade services, will impact markets and their participants in the future.
The Clearing Environment: Volatility, New Products and Regulation
The challenges of upholding the safety and confidence in a clearing house are massive, and the clearing arena is in a state of continuous evolution. With an ever-changing economic environment and geo-political actions, the markets are seeing extreme volatility. Even with that volatility, CCPs are introducing new products for clearing and reviewing the implications of recently introduced regulations. Our panel will share their experiences and insights to discuss clearing services and the impact on the global cleared derivatives market.
The Derivatives Landscape in China
Financial sector reforms and the search for continued economic growth is spurring internationalization efforts in China’s derivatives markets. The recent China’s Futures and Derivatives Law (FDL) is an historic development, being the first law in China regulating futures and derivatives trading at a national legislative level. The opening up and easing of market access to better facilitate cross border trading is being watched very carefully by industry players both in and outside of mainland China. Our panelists will provide their insights on the business potential and risks involved in growing China’s derivatives markets.
Schedule subject to change.

Exhibit Hall Opens
Digital Assets: The Next Currency?
Digital assets are transitioning into a recognized financial asset class, with mainstream exchanges developing their own offerings and regulators addressing how to oversee the market. This session will provide a regional overview of how digitalization is reshaping financial markets, the response of regulators, institutional appetite and the development of derivatives markets.
The Great Debate – Digital Assets
Motion: This house believes that crypto markets will lead to disintermediation of the clearing firm model.
The rise of the super crypto trading platform is revolutionizing the traditional market model and threatening the future role of the clearing firm. Should the industry care?
Two teams of industry experts will join in a spirited debate about this topical issue. This fun, lively and informative battle is always a highlight of the Asia Derivatives Conference. At the conclusion of the debate, the audience votes on which side fared better on the day.
What’s Next for the Individual Investor?
Recent global events have created unprecedented volatility in the retail markets. From curbing inflation policies to geo-political events, individual investors have been affected. Our panel of experts will discuss major market themes, portfolio positioning, use of derivatives, the changing regulatory environment, and a look ahead at 2023 from the investor point of view. They will share their views on new customer protection and regulatory changes impacting their ability to use the markets.
Looking Through the Industry’s Crystal Ball
As 2022 draws to a close, the industry is witnessing another year of record volumes, driven in large part by geo-political trends. Yes, as the market responds to current developments like the war in Ukraine, it is also looking further ahead at longer term issues such as climate change and the growing adoption of digital assets. Panelists will consider the role of derivative markets in meeting these and other challenges and discuss opportunities that lie ahead.
