AMF contributes to G20 discussions on OTC derivatives

Organization Securities

The Autorité des marchés financiers ("AMF") is contributing to the work carried out by the Over-the-Counter (OTC) Derivatives Regulators Group (ODRG), which is composed of executives and senior representatives from OTC derivatives regulators in Australia, Brazil, the European Union, Hong Kong, Japan, Ontario, Singapore, Switzerland, the United States and Québec. The ODRG issued a report this week that provides an update to the G20 on progress in resolving issues related to an OTC derivatives framework, in particular with respect to cross-border implementation.

The ODRG anticipates that it will submit its next report in preparation for the G20 Leaders Summit in November 2014.
