CCPs and clearing members work to promote safe and efficient mechanisms by collecting margin, establishing default rules, and managing porting or liquidating customer trades in a time of crisis. Regulators are now discussing mechanisms to use when a crisis creates a systemic issue for the CCP. This panel will consider new international standards, regulations, and CCP rules related to resiliency, recovery and resolution and whether new regulatory initiatives are improving the overall system or actually raising new concerns.  Panelists will debate the pros and cons of using tools such as variation and initial margin hair cutting, partial tear ups, loss allocation and at what point a CCP should go from recovery to resolution.
