Adequate risk containment systems in place to avoid failures: –Robust on-line Margining System (IM and MTM). –Exposure limits linked to Liquid Net-worth –Position limits linked to underlying size and OI - Market Level, Trading/Clearing Member Level & Client Level Separation of clearing and trading activities. Compulsory collection of margins from clients. Continuous on-line monitoring of client level positions.

10. OPPORTUNITIES TO CREATE VALUE THROUGH DERIVATIVES
11. Esops – An opportunity Esops are essentially call options, issued to the employees. Today, either employee can exercise those options after vesting or let them expire worthless. Listing and trading of vested options would help the employees monetize their options without exercising them. Opportunity: Credit the vested options to employees in their Demat account. List and trade the vested options on Stock Exchanges.
12. Rights – An opportunity Rights are essentially call options, issued to the existing shareholders. Today, shareholders exercise these options, let them expire worthless or surrender/transact them in OTC market. Listing and trading of rights on Stock Exchanges would help the shareholders monetize their options much more efficiently (better liquidity, price discovery and ease). Opportunity: Credit rights entitlements (REs) to shareholders in their Demat account. List and trade the REs on Stock Exchanges.
13. Put options & buy back – An opportunity Fixed price buy back of shares is essentially a put option, offered by companies to the existing shareholders. Today, shareholders exercise these options or let them expire worthless. There is no market to transact these options. Based on exercise or no exercise, process results in non-homogeneous distribution of values among investors. Listing and trading of these options on Stock Exchanges would help the shareholders monetize their option. Opportunity: Credit buy back entitlements (BEs) to shareholders in their Demat account. List and trade the BEs on Stock Exchanges. Companies may also write put warrants to the market participants (builds confidence + earns money).
14. Third party Warrants – An opportunity A warrant is nothing but an option - may be call or put. Institutions may write call options backed by the shares, they own (covered call). Institutions may like to buy the put options on the shares, they own. Institutions may also write long dated naked options. In this case, their positions may be margined like any other sold position (institution created product and not the exchange created product). Warrants may be cash settled or physically settled warrants.
15. Derivatives Risk Management in OTC OTM market has a lot to learn from the exchange environment on risk management. More and more business to move to collateralized basis: – Margining to make customers much more disciplined – Margining avoids unhealthy competition among intermediaries – Margining results in reduction in credit risk and capital charge, which in turn reduces the threshold minimum return on the trades i.e. Pricing, hopefully, becomes sharper (better for customers) – Regulators may like to define minimum margin for all OTC trades – Opportunity for clearing corporations to take up/serve the OTC trades
16. Derivatives Risk Management in OTC OTC market will eventually outsource credit risk management function to professional entities (clearing corporations): – Significant focus on monitoring and control of credit limits. – Efficient execution of collateral agreement in timely manner - MTM computation, collateral calls and squaring off of transactions Clearing corporations to build competencies /gear up to handle complicated/structured transactions in the OTC world (beginning may happen with simple transactions). CCIL has already taken several steps in this direction. Journey is still a very lengthy one.
