On the podcast, Anthony and James first preview Waters’ first-ever fintech event, before discussing James’ trip to Chicago. Then they look at how phase-three firms are preparing to comply with Standard Initial Margin Model (SIMM) guidelines for the mandatory exchange of initial margin on non-cleared derivatives trades. Finally, they wrap things up by discussing all things European soccer.

1:00 A look at the inaugural London Fintech Innovation Summit and why you should care.

14:00 New initial margin rules that will go live next year.

17:30 A Brit talks about the English Premier League and Champions League, with a focus on Chelsea—yet another reason to dislike James.
