ISDA: derivatives exposures, regulatory transparency and trade repositories

Recent turbulence in various markets has raised concerns among some policymakers about their ability to see and monitor the risk exposures faced by counterparties from their derivatives transactions. Key data about these exposures is available due to mandated derivatives trade reporting requirements – via derivatives trade repositories – that have been established over the past decade.
