8 Introduction Interaction between Financial and Energy Regulation *MTL: market transparency legislation
9 EMIR Main IssuesCentral clearing of eligible (standardised) OTC derivative contracts (applicable to all financial parties & parties above the clearing threshold)Level of the clearing threshold and calculationDefinition of hedgingRisk mitigations requirementsTypes of collateral allowed for margining at exchangesTransaction reporting requirementsRisk management requirements for non-cleared tradesTransaction reporting on all derivative transactions
10 EMIR Where are the uncertainties? Types of derivatives covered under EMIRDebate around how test applies to current broker-based trading activityWithin scope, additional obligations on EU established entities requiring changes to:systems,operations anddocumentationExact meaning of some key EMIR terminology (“confirmation”)Extra-territoriality/ anti-avoidanceCollateral for un-cleared tradesApplication to intra-group tradesRegulatory approach to enforcement/ penalties for non-compliance
11 EMIR Implementation issues: Non-Financials Notifications for Non-Financials:calculating whether the group wide gross notional position in OTC derivatives exceed any one of the clearing thresholds;the rolling average position over 30 working days;classifying the hedging activity - determining/measuring risk reducing activities from a portfolio perspective or trade-by-trade?which current OTC derivatives activity would count?which group entities are affected?
12 EMIR Implementation issues: NFCs (cont.) Risk mitigation rules: Confirmations:Need for processes to ensure EMIR confirmation deadlines can be metExecution of a confirmation “as soon as possible” and “where available by electronic means”Portfolio reconciliation/compressionDispute resolutionReporting requirement:wider in scope than MiFID 1 transaction reporting;covers all derivative transactions irrespective of asset class and trading venue (OTC and exchange traded)Intra-group exemption
13 EMIR Calculation of the Clearing Threshold Clearing Threshold: sum of notional value of OTC derivatives that do not qualify as a hedge

23 Conclusions Impact of Regulation 1. The energy trading market has proven to be resilient to market changes; 2. Liquidity may suffer to mix of higher capital cost, smaller margins and regulatory incentive “not to trade”; 3. Smaller traders may quit the business, or merge activities.
