Further to the launch of the Clearing and Settlement Working Group (CAS-WG) two months ago (read more here), we have been a little quiet as the core membership of the group determined to map out details of subject groups and next steps.
Each subject group held initial meetings in April and are now ready to move forward with nominations of Chair, Co-Chair and Rapporteurs for the four groups that have been agreed.
The four Subject Groups are:
- The Market Infrastructures Subject Group
- The Risk Subject Group
- The Regulation Subject Group
- The Standards Subject Group
Each Subject Group aims to absorb, debate and discuss the implications of change from the European Market Infrastructures Regulation (EMIR) along with other changes introduced by the FSA, European Commission, Bank of International Settlements (BIS) Basel Committee and more.
If you wish to join these Subject Groups or would like to put your name forward as Chair, Co-Chair or Rapporteur (Notary), then now is your change.
The Market Infrastructures Subject Group meeting will be held on Wednesday 9 May from 4.30 – 5.30pm at The London Stock Exchange, 10 Paternoster Square, EC4M 7LS.
The Risk Subject Group meeting will be held on Tuesday 15 May from 4.30 – 5.30pm at Grant Thornton, 30 Finsbury Square, EC2P 2YU (sat nav: EC2A 1AG).
The Standards Subject Group meeting will be held on Thursday 17 May from 11 – 12pm at the offices of BT, Faraday Building, 1 Knightrider Street, EC4V 5BT.
- define the scope of each Subject Group,
- identify key topics to be addressed,
- agree a high level plan of action, and
- gather nominations for the key roles of Chair, Co-Chair and Rapporteur.
If you wish to attend and can actively contribute to these meetings, please register by following the respective links. We would like to remind you that you can participate in more than one Subject Group if you so wish, and that all Subject Groups are open to membership from anyone at no charge.
We are also pleased to announce that the next CAS-WG plenary session will be held on Wednesday 30 May from 2 – 5pm at The London Stock Exchange, 10 Paternoster Square, EC4M 7LS.
This second plenary meeting will update all attendees on the progress of each subject group to date, and will formally announce nominations for the Chair, Co-Chair and Rapporteur for each Subject Group, plus other key roles.
Following these meetings, further subject group meetings will take place in June with the next planned plenary session to take place at BT's offices in Newgate Street, London EC4 in mid-July.
We would like to thank you for your interest and support to date and look forward to your continuing participation and contribution.
