Program highlights include:

A session with CFTC Commissioner Mark P. Wetjen

A discussion of the status of CFTC implementation of the Dodd-Frank swap reforms, and what may be anticipated from the CFTC in the year ahead.

What’s next for benchmark regulation

We will assess the upcoming regulatory framework and the impact it will have on US market participants. Our discussion will cover the scope of the regulation, definition of critical benchmarks, oversight of commodity benchmarks, regulated data and survey based benchmarks and the application of proportionate requirements.

Implementation of the IOSCO principles

IOSCO will soon release a progress report regarding administrator compliance with its benchmark principles. Our discussion will explore the challenges administrators are facing around compliance, interpretation of the principles and proportionality around business models.
