  • Financial Trade Associations Statement On Fed’s Proposed Rule On Physical Commodities And Merchant Banking Activities

    Date 24/09/2016

    In response to the  Federal Reserve's proposed rule to increase capital requirements on merchant banking and physical commodities activities and investments, SIFMA, American Bankers Association, Institute of International Bankers and The Clearing House released the following joint statement:

    "While we are still digesting the proposal on physical commodities and merchant banking issued by the Federal Reserve today, it is both inappropriate and unfortunate that it has proposed regulatory changes that are based upon wholly theoretical and unsubstantiated concerns, rather than actual facts, evidence, or historical experience. More than 100 end-users have either submitted or joined other letters attesting that financial holding companies produce substantial public benefits including lower prices and greater market liquidity. By imposing unjustifiably higher capital on this important economic activity, end-users will ultimately pay the price, burdening business and hindering job creation, the formation of new businesses and economic growth."

  • Speech Of CFTC Commissioner Sharon Y. Bowen Before The CFTC Annual Symposium For International Market Authorities

    Date 23/09/2016

    Thank you for that wonderful introduction. I am very pleased to be here among so many of my fellow regulators from around the world. In fact, considering how far I know many of you have traveled to be here today, I want to talk to you about a topic that I believe goes to the heart of how financial regulation operates these days, namely, the need for cross-border transparency and cooperation among regulators. First, though, I want to brief you on what we at the CFTC have been working on and what you can expect to see from us in the not too distant future. Next, I will discuss the need for greater coordination and collaboration among our community of financial regulators. Finally, I’d like to briefly address recent international developments affecting our markets, developments that I believe underscore the need for cooperation. As always the opinions I am about to discuss are my own and do not reflect the opinions of the Commission or CFTC staff.
