The article focuses on the implications of the reluctance of prime brokers to provide give-ups for hedge funds that process over-the-counter (OTC) derivative trades. It cites the effect of the trend on funds that trade fixed-income products. It notes that hedge funds will need to track and consolidate their own transactional data without give-ups. It also details the alternatives that can be considered by funds if they lose access to give-ups.
