ABA Launches Center for Bank Derivatives Policy

ABA this week launched its new Center for Bank Derivatives Policy, which brings together resources for banks focused on the derivatives market. Led by ABA VP Jason Shafer, the new center is intended to help banks navigate the new and growing regulatory regime for derivatives, which are used by more than 1,000 banks to manage risk for themselves and their customers.

As the only association bringing a bank-centric view to the derivatives market, ABA and the new center provide resources and advocate for policies that ensure banks will continue to be able to use derivatives to manage risk and meet their customers’ needs.

A new ABA.com webpage for the center brings together resources on key derivatives issues, including banks as end users, cross-border harmonization, legal entity identifiers, margin and others. View resources from the Center for Bank Derivatives Policy. For more information, contact Shafer.
