4 problems that you will address at ETRC

February 17, 2017

We wanted to share with you 4 problems which have formed the programme at this year's Annual ETRC.


 We hope that by joining the plethora of regulators and traders, you will overcome them!



1. Five letters: M-i-F-I-D


With less than a year away from implementation of MiFID II - the time is now to make sure you are confidently in scope.


Europe's largest renewable generator, Statkraft, will be going into detail on:

  • The specific implications on commodity traders

  • What the changes it brings to your structure as well as the trading environment

  • Compliance requirements implied by a license

  • Whether or not you need one in the first place


Day 1, 8 March 15:00 and 16:30 see programme >>



2.   Not enough face-time with regulators


Yes, there are directives, documents, pamphlets and everything else in between - but in the midst of the daily job - there is nothing like speaking to a regulator in person.


With regulators from:

  • Switzerland - EICom

  • Latvia - Public Utilities Commission of Latvia

  • Netherlands - ACM

  • Sweden - Sweden Energy Markets Inspectorate

  • Hungary - MEKH

  • Denmark - DERA


Attendees will enjoy updates - via talks and panel debates - on:

  • MiFID II, level 3 guidance

  • MAR - anti-abuse activities

  • Brexit - potential consequences

  • REMIT &  EMIR - what are the plans to improve the quality of data?



Day 1, 8 March 09:50-13:00 see programme >>




 3.   I can learn at home - I want to know what my peers and competitors are doing 


It's a fair point - in 2017, there has never been such an abundance of information online.


Know what isn't online? How DONG Energy, Wingas and a member of a European Exchange tie the MiFIDs; the CRDs; the EMIRs; the MARs etc; into one broader picture? Take part in this panel discussion for the definitive picture.


Day 2, 9 March 15:00 - see programme >>



4.  Brexit - what exactly are the possible scenarios?


Yes, we all know that no-one knows precisely for certain the course of the world's most high-profile divorce, but wouldn't it be useful to have several projections based on "what if" scenarios?


Leaders from Gazprom, Centrica, Swisselectric and Axpo will be delving into all things:


  • Impacts on contracts between UK entities and EU counterparties

  • GBP vs USD - impacts on UK and EU firms

  • Collateral damage expected?




Day 2, 9 March 15:30 - see programme >>
