Clearing forms the core part of a smooth and efficiently functioning financial market infrastructure. Traditionally, it has been provided by clearing houses, most of which today act as a 'central counterparty' (CCP) between the two sides of a trade. The rapid growth of cross-border trading has sparked discussion on the most efficient industry structure - particularly in Europe and the US. At the heart of this discussion lies the question of whether the implementation of a single clearing house creates greater benefits than a more competitive but interlinked market structure. This is the starting point for this book, which analyses the efficiency of clearing and clearing industry structure. Along with clear-cut definitions and a concise characterisation and descriptive analysis of the clearing industry, the book determines the efficiency impact of various cross-border integration and harmonisation initiatives between CCPs. This serves to identify the most preferable future structure for the clearing industry.

In the twenty-first century, the global community constantly strives to bring structure and order to the world through strategic means. From the highest levels of governments and militaries to multilateral institutions, NGOs, and corporations, a strategy for the future of a company, region, country, or even the world is tantamount to success. Yet few understand what strategy actually is and how it can be developed, planned, and implemented. Strategy for the Global Market combines a fundamental study of the theory of strategy with its practical applications to provide a new approach to the global emerging market. Due to the technological transformations in communications and transportation, and the birth and development of both the global community and the global marketplace over the past twenty years, the world’s population and corporations are in much closer contact with their counterparts across the globe than ever before. This has led to increasing competition and even rivalries. Understanding the strategic environment, as well as solving problems either through amicable means or conflict, requires the powerful instrument of strategy to remain efficient and to triumph. Features of this book include: Methodology and practical recommendations for all stages of developing and implementing strategy. A comprehensive guide with explanations and descriptions, for the preparation and orderly compilation of all necessary strategy documents. Real-world examples taken from corporate, government, and military strategizing practices in emerging market countries and the global marketplace. This book should be on the desk of every national, regional, and military leader, corporate executive, manager, and student of strategy.

Amid the global financial turbulence, the Mutual Market Access (MMA) programme, comprising the Shanghai Connect, the Shenzhen Connect and the Bond Connect, has solidified Hong Kong’s status as a unique financial hub connecting the East and the West and, in this process, has explored a new path for the opening-up of China’s capital market. In the face of economic structural changes across the globe, Hong Kong seeks to look into innovations in financing the new economy, and has built up experiences for reference in the Asian time zone. Hong Kong is gradually establishing a new ecosystem around new-economy enterprises and has made them new targets of investment for both Mainland and overseas investors trading under MMA. This book is the first bilingual title in the market that explains in detail the MMA model between Hong Kong and Mainland China and innovations in new-economy financing, in which experts and research teams who are experienced in these areas discuss in-depth on the key functional drivers of innovations in Hong Kong and the Mainland, including the “MMA”, “new-economy financing” and “global asset allocation”. Elaborating the unique concepts of the MMA model and summarising what HKEX has learned in its reforms in new-economy financing, this book shall come in handy for market participants to make better use of the MMA model and benefit from the latest reforms of Hong Kong’s listing regime. 透過「互聯互通」框架,利用香港上市融資優勢,接軌國際金融市場 市場上首本深入闡述內地與香港「互聯互通」和新經濟融資創新的中、英雙語著作 國際金融環境動蕩,以「滬港通」、「深港通」和「債券通」為代表的互聯互通機制,奠定了香港連接東西的獨特金融樞紐地位,也為中國資本市場的對外開放探索出一條新路徑。 全球經濟結構面臨轉型,香港在新經濟融資創新方面不斷探索,積累了亞洲時區可供參考的經驗,促進香港市場逐步形成圍繞新經濟企業的新生態圈,為參與「互聯互通」的海內外投資者提供了新的標的。 本書是市場上第一本深入闡述香港與內地的互聯互通和新經濟融資創新的中、英雙語著作,由在相關領域具有豐富業務經驗的專業人士和研究力量,圍繞近年來促進香港和內地金融業開放創新的最關鍵動能:「互聯互通」、「新經濟融資」、「全球資產配置」展開深入討論,系統梳理互聯互通的獨特設計理念,總結香港交易所新經濟融資的改革探索經驗,為市場參與者更好地把握「互聯互通」和新上市制度改革帶來的制度紅利,提供系統的專業研究支持。 序——在國際大變局中探索香港的獨特戰略定位 李小加 香港交易所 集團行政總裁 Preface –Exploring Hong Kong’s Unique Strategic Positioning in the Face of International Changes Charles Li Chief Executive, Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing Limited 第一篇——互聯互通與新經濟融資的新趨勢 Part I – The New Trend of Connectivity and New-Economy Financing 第1章—互聯互通:香港成為連接中國與世界的金融樞紐 Chapter 1 – Mutual Market Access: Hong Kong as a Financial Hub Connecting China and the World 李小加 香港交易所 集團行政總裁 Charles Li Chief Executive, Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing Limited 第2章—新經濟融資創新與香港的探索 Chapter 2 – Financing Innocation for the New Economy and Hong Kong’s Explorations 陸挺 野村國際(香港)休閒公司 環球市場部 中國經濟學家 Ting Lu Chief China Economist, Global Markets, Nomura International (Hong Kong) Limited 王立升 野村國際(香港)休閒公司 環球市場部 中國經濟學家 Lisheng Wang China Economist, Global Markets, Nomura International (Hong Kong) Limited 王競 野村國際(香港)休閒公司 環球市場部 中國經濟學家 Jing Wang China Economist, Global Markets, Nomura International (Hong Kong) Limited 第3章—互聯互通開啟中國資本市場新紀元 Chapter 3 – Stock Connect Ushers in a New Era for China’s Capital Market 洪灝 交銀國際控股有限公司 研究部主管兼董事總經理 Hau Hong Head of Research and Managing Director, BOCOM International Holdings Company Limited 第二篇——新經濟公司的上市制度改革和融資創新 Part II–The Listing Reform and Financing Innovation for New-Economy Companies 第4章—香港聯交所的新股上市流程和重點 Chapter 4 – Initial Public Offering (IPO) and Listing Process on the SEHK with Highlights 香港交易所 首席中國經濟學家辦公室及環球上市服務部 Chief China Economist’s Office and Global Issuer Services, Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing Limited 第5章—香港的新股上市制度改革與突破 Chapter 5 – Reform and Breakthrough of Hong Kong’s Listing Regime 香港交易所 首席中國經濟學家辦公室及環球上市服務部 Chief China Economist’s Office and Global Issuer Services, Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing Limited 第6章—雙重股權架構的香港實踐 Chapter 6 – The Practice of Dual-Class Share Structure in Hong Kong 香港交易所 首席中國經濟學家辦公室 Chief China Economist’s Office, Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing Limited 第7章—同股不同權:對投資者是好?是壞?

With EU legislation, the increasing reach of the US economy, greater flexibility of financial instruments, and M&A activity across borders, financial markets are becoming ever more international. Overshadowing them all is the spectre of the credit crunch - a global tsunami that stemmed originally from the subprime mortgage crisis in the US but quickly became a global issue, hitting both international money markets and high street lending. How the Global Financial Markets Really Work brings clarity and sense to an often complex international environment, showing how circumstances in one country can have a dramatic effect on the financial environment in many others. The book examines financial markets as they are today - global and, for better or worse, interlinked and inter-dependent. It covers the markets of the US and Europe, as well as other key financial centres around the world, such as Hong Kong and Sydney, but will also offer insight to the unique issues facing emerging markets, including Eastern Europe, China, India and the United Arab Emirates.

This paper discusses key findings of the Detailed Assessment of Observance of the Committee on Payment and Settlement Systems–International Organization of Securities Commissions Principles for Financial Market Infrastructures(FMIs) in Singapore. Singapore has a well-developed payment, clearing, and settlement infrastructure, which includes two central counterparties for financial products. The infrastructure includes a large value payment system operated by the central bank and securities and derivatives clearing and settlement systems operated by the Singapore Exchange Limited. The FMIs in Singapore are subject to effective regulation, supervision, and oversight of the Monetary Authority Singapore (MAS). The legal framework provides the MAS with sufficient powers to obtain timely information and induce change.

Anyone reading the business section of a newspaper lately knows that the financial exchanges--stock, bonds, FX, commodities, and so forth--are undergoing tremendous transformations. Fund managers, market makers, traders, exchange professionals, marekt data providers and analyzers, investors--anyone involved with the financial exchanges needs to understand the major forces pushing this transformation in order to position themselves and their institutions to the best advantage. In this book, veteran exchange expert Michael Gorham joins his twenty-five years of experience with CME and CBOT to the technical expertise of Nidhi Singh of Goldman Sachs to write a book that tells the story of this dramatic transformation. They chronicle the shift: --from floors to screens --from private clubs to public companies, and --from local and national to global competition. They analyze each of these shifts, identify the drivers behind them and look forward to the implications arising out of them for exchange business in the future. They also explore several key trends: --an increase in product innovation --the integration of markets from all over the world onto a single screen, --the rise of the modular exchange --the outsourcing of various exchange functions, and --the difficulty of transcending geography for regulatory purposes. So join Gorham and Singh in learning the story of this fundamental transformation. As old ways of working are being destroyed, entirely new types of jobs are being created, and new ways of working with exchanges. This book will help you chart the way forward to financial success. *Gorham is an exchange expert and Singh is an electronic trading expert, they combine their expertise to reveal the inner workings of the exchanges and where they will go in the future *Only book to point to new skills needed and new ways of making money for users of exchange services

Derivative Market Competition

OTC Versus Organized Derivative Exchanges

Recent regulatory initiatives in the United States have again raised the issue of a ''''level regulatory and supervisory playing field'''' and the degree of competition globally between over-the-counter (OTC) derivatives and organized derivative exchange (ODE) markets. This paper models some important aspects of how an ODE market interrelates with the OTC markets. It analyzes various ways in which an ODE market can respond to competition from the OTC markets and considers whether ODE markets would actually benefit from a more level playing field. Among other factors, such as different transaction costs, different abilities to mitigate credit risk play a significant role in determining the degree of competition between the two types of markets. This implies that a potentially important service ODE markets can provide OTC market participants is to extend clearing services to them. Such services would allow the OTC markets to focus more on providing less competitive contracts/innovations and instead customize its contracts to specific investors'' risk preferences and needs.

The analysis focuses on the effectiveness of the regulatory, supervisory, and oversight frameworks for central counterparties (CCPs) and central securities depositories (CSDs) in the European Union (EU) as these are essential for financial stability. Cooperation between authorities within and outside the EU is critical to reduce the risks related to the cross-border nature of clearing and settlement within the EU. In this context, crisis management arrangements among EU authorities are of key importance to adequately fulfill the various responsibilities that authorities may have in relation to CCPs and CSDs in crisis situations.

The Risk Controllers

Central Counterparty Clearing in Globalised Financial Markets

Publisher: John Wiley & Sons

View: 752

Clearing houses, or CCPs, were among the very few organisations to emerge from the global financial crisis with their standing enhanced. In the chaotic aftermath of the bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers, they successfully completed trades worth trillions of dollars in a multitude of financial instruments across listed and over-the-counter markets, and so helped avert financial Armageddon. That success transformed the business of clearing. Governments and regulators around the world gave CCPs and the clearing services they provide a front-line role in protecting the global economy from future excesses of finance. CCPs, which mitigate risk in financial markets, responded by greatly expanding their activities, notably in markets for over-the-counter derivatives, and often in fierce competition with one another. In The Risk Controllers, journalist and author Peter Norman describes how CCPs operate, how they handled the Lehman default, and the challenges they now face. Because central counterparty clearing is a complex business with a long history that continues to influence decisions and structures even in today’s fast changing world, The Risk Controllers explores the development of CCPs and clearing from the earliest times to the present. It draws on the experiences of the people who helped to shape the business of clearing today. It sets the development of CCPs and clearing in the broader context of changes in society, politics and regulation. The book examines turning points, such as the 1987 stock market crash, that set clearing on a new path and the impact of long running trends, including the exponential growth of computer power and the ebb and flow of globalisation. Written in non-technical language, The Risk Controllers provides a unique and accessible guide to CCPs and clearing. It is essential reading for clearing professionals, legislators and regulators whose job it is to take this vitally important business into the future. “The recent crisis has, thankfully, renewed interest in the importance of central counterparties: how they can help preserve stability or, as Hong Kong showed in 1987, undermine stability if they are not super sound. Peter Norman’s book places the role of clearing houses in a historical context, and explains why the financial system’s plumbing matters so much. It should be read by anyone interested in building safer capital markets.” Paul Tucker, Deputy Governor Financial Stability, Bank of England
