Following the G-20 agreement to improve over-the-counter derivatives transparency and lessen perceived counterparty risk through the magic of central clearing, a number of domestic and regional players plan to establish and operate their own global OTC derivatives clearing operations. This will fragment the global OTC derivatives playing field, pumping up participant volume and putting Latin America, Africa, and Australia on the map for OTC derivatives clearing, at least for now. In order to truly rock the OTC derivatives house, incumbents and new CCPs must grab or retain significant share.
