New Zealand proposes steps to keep playing in the global OTC sandpit

David Craig, Partner | Friday 14 July 2017

​​​​For large counterparties based in G20 countries, margin rules for over-the-counter (OTC) derivatives have been a challenge for some time. By contrast, New Zealand counterparties have, until recently, been largely immune from the effects of these rules. However, given the global nature of the OTC derivatives markets, and the dependency of local banks on offshore funding, that shelter was never going to last. We might have been permitted to play in the global OTC sandpit up until now, but the big boys get to set the rules. And, when they change them, your choices are to accept the new rules or find another sandpit to play in.
