“Decoding Derivatives”  

“Derivatives and other structured finance products are creatures of law. They are coded in property, security, entity, and bankruptcy law and designed to make the most of the gaps left by the scaffolding of regulatory and tax regimes. Decoding derivatives helps shed new light on the organization of financial markets; how they are scaled to size; and the interdependence between regulation and financial innovation” by Katharina Pistor, Professor of Law at Columbia Law School.

The lecture is organized by the Brevan Howard Centre for Financial Analysis at Imperial College London Business School.  It will be held in the Lower Ground Round Lecture Theatre of the Business School within Tanaka Building on Exhibition Road at Imperial’s South Kensington Campus.
