The Dodd-Frank Act established a novel, comprehensive framework for the regulation of over-the-counter (OTC) derivatives and the market participants who transact in these products.  That regulatory framework, split primarily between the SEC and CFTC, has been substantially implemented by the CFTC. For their part, the SEC has made substantial progress and at the direction of Chair Mary Jo White is making Title VII implementation a 2016 priority.

The regulatory regime touches the activities of all participants in the swaps markets, from end-users to major swap participants to swap dealers.  The regulations also affect a broad range of market facilities from clearinghouses to exchanges, to newly conceived swap execution facilities and swap data repositories, and other regulatory initiatives are also replacing the market.

The Dodd-Frank Act imposes registration requirements, mandatory clearing and trading requirements, margin requirements, capital and business conduct standards, and transaction and position reporting, as well as limitations on swap positions.

The legislation also established new limitations on the scope of derivatives and proprietary trading activities that may be conducted by certain financial institutions.

At this program, our distinguished faculty will provide a comprehensive overview of the evolving regulatory framework for OTC derivatives and derivatives market participants, and explain how the regulatory framework affects these products, the structure of the market for these products and market participants.  The program will also cover documentation issues, and recent developments in tax, accounting and litigation related to OTC derivatives, as well as professional responsibility issues associated with derivatives.
