Welcome to Risk & Return Korea 2013

Asia Risk magazine is delighted to announce we are returning to Seoul in 2013 for Risk & Return Korea, the industry's leading forum for risk and investment professionals in Korea.

Ongoing regulatory reforms are in place by the government and regulatory authorities with:

  • Voluntary clearing being said to start in April with mandatory clearing set for October
  • A recent signed Memorandum of Understanding by the Singapore Exchange and Korea Exchange to jointly explore collaborations in the development of OTC financial derivatives clearing capabilities
  • A newly annouced revised bill by the FSC that will allow firms to trade with synthetic ETFs, opening the doors to an international market for Korean firms
  • Prepared to adopt the Basel III framework the moment it is introduced
  • The introduction of covered bonds legislation that will not only place South Korea in a diversified APAC covered bonds market but will help with the increasing concern in high household debt

Join us on 26 March to discuss latest regulatory developments and challenges faced, and to benchmark your risk management and investment methodologies against those of your peers.

This year's conference highlights include:

  • In-depth sessions focussing on South Korea's upcoming regulatory regime 
  • Status of Basel III implementation and how banks will address the new capital requirements
  • OTC clearing regulations and how banks can prepare for the move to central clearing
  • New generation trading solutions in the regulatory environment
  • Structure for risk management of CCP
  • Collateral management in the context of OTC derivatives
  • Background of the recent legislation of Korean covered bonds
  • Korea's ETF industry and its future growth


Buy-side professionals working within corporates, insurance companies, asset/investment management companies, pension funds, hedge funds and local banks can register now for free.

There are also limited paid delegate passes and sponsorship opportunities available for those who do not qualify.
