Financial Stability Board urges Hedge Funds to hold more liquid assets in order to meet margin calls in case of market shocks 😱👀

Source: FT >>> Financial policymakers have urged hedge funds, pension investors and commodities traders to keep more liquid assets on hand and develop stress tests to better withstand shocks from extreme market moves. The Financial Stability Board, which includes the world’s leading finance ministers, central bankers and regulators, said on Wednesday that after assessing a series of recent market panics, many funds and traders had made “inadequate” preparation for sudden price moves. Its call increases the scrutiny of so-called non-bank financial institutions, which have become a larger part of trading in financial markets since the 2008 financial crisis. Many have come under deep strain from unexpected moves in market prices, from the March bond market meltdown at the onset of the coronavirus pandemic in 2020, to the UK’s pension fund crisis in 2022, when a wave of selling by some pension fund strategies forced a Bank of England intervention.
