APEC Financial Regulators Training Initiative: Regional Seminar on Derivatives Markets and Products

This program, hosted by the Securities and Exchange Commission of Thailand, is designed to examine the structure of derivative products, how they are traded and priced, and their underlying risks. The seminar aims to assist regulators with

  1. strengthening their regulatory framework covering derivatives,
  2. improving investigation processes for identification of illegal practices involving derivatives, and
  3. identifying the weaknesses or complexities in structured products following the financial crisis and latest developments in strengthening regulatory policies in this area.

The seminar will draw on regional markets that boast some of the world’s greatest trading volume and which continue to grow steadily. The seminar will examine the attributes of regional markets and the use of new trading technologies.
