Having seen the details of your event on The Lawyer CPD Service I would like to register for the event : Swaps Overview on 17 October 2013.
Lawyers can expect a fruitful harvest from Swaps. Not only was LIBOR allegedly fixed by major banks- so mispricing Swaps (Swaps are usually priced off LIBOR) but many companies were reputedly mis-sold Swaps so opening an avenue for damages.
Further, changes in Swaps regulation and trading mean that counterparty agreements as well as standard trade agreements need reviewing in the light of what can go wrong and the new regulations.
Finally Swaps are now a key tool for pension funds trying to effect their new risk minimisation technique of Liability Driven Investment (LDI). Pension Investment mandates and all the associated documentation may need reviewing.
This course covers both the old and new world of Swaps : what has resulted, how the new methodology works and its many significant consequences. It includes the key regulations affecting the swap market in Europe and the US. It is a key course for anyone seriously involved with Swaps whether as Lawyer, Investor, Lawyer or Auditor.

The financial crisis and the ensuing avalanche of regulation has changed swap valuation almost beyond recognition over the last few years and has greatly increased its complexity. One result is that dealing and settlement arrangements are often different and importantly the same swap can have different valuations depending on which bank is the counterparty.
