We are looking for: 3 articles around the Dodd Frank regulatory initiative in the US. We are willing to pay between $125 - $150 for these articles. These articles should be 700 to 1000 words long.
Please note – I need good first drafts. I’m an expert in these areas but just do not have the time to draft these from scratch. I will sue the articles as a template from which to add information and final polish. For those that can do a good job on these there will be more work. Note – I may be able to supply baseline material from which you can go out and look for more information but I need the work that is written to be original
These are the topics for the articles:
• Operational Risk associated with the implementation of the Dodd Frank initiative.
Note – Operational Risk is as defined in the Basel 2 initiative and will specifically address control risks, model risk and reputational risk
• What will the impact of Dodd Frank be on the role of agency (anonymous, client based) versus principal based trading
Principal business i.e. market making, trader speaking with clients will now be severely limited under Dodd Frank for cleared swaps. How will this affect the trading community? Where will the traders go? What will happen to banks profits?
• What are the potential unintended consequences of Dodd-Frank?
Some of these may include migration to less efficient, from a risk perspective, futures market OR could mean disincentivising commercial end users, who use derivatives to guard against real risk, from doing derivative trades – costing the end consumer (if the extra risk gets passed on to the end consumer through more expensive products or because their products are less profitable resulting in their market valuation to fall)
• Dodd-Frank and the opening up of the market to Algorithmic and High Frequency Trading
Based on several surveys (McKinsey, Citi…) it appears that as the market fragments and to prevent trading strategies from being known thru real time price dissemination (“shredding”), that the notional size of trades will drop dramatically and volume will increase accordingly. How will Algo and HFT take advantage of this? Is this a good thing? What will the knock on effect be for commercial end users? Will we be susceptible to flash crashes?
