Learn about regulatory reforms to the Canadian OTC Derivatives Market and Enhance your Compliance Capabilities

The over-the-counter (OTC) derivatives market forms an integral part of the world’s capital markets. It has been subject to numerous attempts at regulation because of its size, complexity and opaqueness. The events surrounding the 2008 financial crises or crisis resulted in a major effort by western nations to increase regulatory oversight of the OTC market.
