  • Statement Of CFTC Commissioner Mark P. Wetjen On The Proposed On Cross Border Margin (Washington, DC)

    Date 29/06/2015

    Today’s release lays out a proposed framework for the application of the commission’s margin rules to un-cleared swaps (the “Margin Rule”) in cross-border transactions. Interestingly, the release states that there was no consensus among those who filed comments in response to the commission’s Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (“ANPR”) last fall, which laid out three alternative, cross-border approaches: the Guidance Approach, the Prudential Regulators’ Approach, and the Entity Approach. To the extent, therefore, that the release was designed to identify a consensus view concerning which of these three approaches was best, it failed.

Margin requirements for uncleared swaps, needless to say, are a core piece of the new regulatory regime we are establishing as required by the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.

  • Statement Of CFTC Commissioner J. Christopher Giancarlo On The Proposed Rule On The Cross-Border Application Of The Margin Requirements (Washington, DC)

    Date 29/06/2015

    The Commission’s proposal for the cross-border application of margin requirements for uncleared swaps is a highly complicated labyrinth. I look forward to the jolt to U.S. economic growth that will occur in the 3rd quarter of 2015 as a result of the thousands of billable hours that will be expended by lawyers and other professionals, who will have to read, interpret and respond to this tangled regulatory construct.
