Allegations over the past 18 months of benchmark rate manipulation have surfaced related to foreign exchange markets, spilling over from recent LIBOR settlements. As a result, the Foreign Exchange (FX) industry has been embroiled in controversy, investigated by central banks around the world, and more than 40 traders suspended from major banks that control the majority of FX market volume.

This special morning workshop will open with an overview of the FX market and how it operates. Subsequent sessions will delve into how the FX Fix works, current FX litigation and how to determine appropriate mark-up for FX transactions.

The workshop features expert speakers, covering such important elements as:

  • How does the FX market work?
  • What are the risks in FX execution?
  • What is the difference between Agency and Principal execution models?
  • How is fixing business currently done?
  • Is there a better way?
  • Does appropriate markup differ by client type? Why?

This morning workshop is designed for securities lawyers, outside counsel, in-house attorneys, government lawyers, documentation managers, consultants, compliance officers and those interested in the machinations of the FX market. This course has been approved for 3.00 Illinois CLE general credit hours.
