Optimizing your euro-derivatives strategy in light of EMIR 3.0:

STIRs and margin efficiencies across the euro yield curve
Virtual Focus Day – 13 June 2024, 14:00 CEST

There are many forces at play in the euro-denominated derivatives market. This Focus Day aims to provide insights on how to optimize your euro yield curve derivatives strategy with a particular focus on STIRs and in light of the regulatory backdrop of EMIR 3.0.

Some of the key questions to be covered include:

  • What are regulatory considerations and how is the practical implementation process on EMIR 3.0 working? What has driven OTC clearing, and how will that change with new regulations?

  • How are the competitive dynamics, and the choice between €STR, Euribor and OTC alternatives playing out?

Our distinguished speakers will share their views in an insightful discussion in two fireside chats, two panel discussions and one keynote.

Panel Discussion
There are many forces at play in the euro-denominated derivatives market. The last six months have seen market share and volumes shift, what are the implications and where are things likely to move in the coming year?

• Will €STR replace the current Euribor lending standard?
• How are the competitive dynamics, and the choice between €STR, Euribor and OTC alternatives playing out?
• STIR partnership – how have incentives and efficiencies shifted adoption?
• Has that been helped by the deeper liquidity pools that Eurex has – like government bond futures?
• What do market participants see as the most important factors for future adoption?
