  • Statement Of CFTC Commissioner Dan M. Berkovitz On Final Rule To Amend The Rulemaking Procedures In Part 13 Of The Commission’s Regulations

    Date 10/12/2019

    I support the final rule to eliminate the obsolete provisions in part 13 of the Commission’s regulations that specify procedures for Commission rulemakings.  Part 13, adopted by the Commission more than 40 years ago, does not conform fully to the rulemaking procedures required by the Administrative Procedure Act (“APA”) and followed today by the Commission. The repeal of these procedures will avoid potential confusion regarding the Commission’s rulemaking process.

  • Dissenting Statement Of CFTC Commissioner Dan M. Berkovitz - “Proposed Rule” And “Request For Additional Comment” On Capital Requirements Of Swap Dealers And Major Swap Participants

    Date 10/12/2019

    I dissent from the document that is called a “Proposed Rule” on the Capital Requirements of Swap Dealers and Major Swap Participants (the “Document”).  My objections are both procedural and substantive.  Procedurally, the Document asks many open ended questions, is vague about what is being proposed, and lacks sufficient supporting data to serve as the basis for a final rule under the Administrative Procedure Act (“APA”). The Document as structured is not a proposal that can lead to a final rule; rather it appears to be more in the nature of an advance notice of proposed rulemaking.

  • Statement Of CFTC Chairman Heath P. Tarbert Before The December 10, 2019 Open Meeting - Tripling Down On Transparency

    Date 10/12/2019

    As regulators, we must be mindful not only of what we do, but how we do it.  Our shared vision for the CFTC is to be the global standard for sound derivatives regulation.[1]  Soundness is built on transparency: we serve our markets best when we act with the benefit of public input and dialogue.  We also owe it to those who rely on our derivatives markets to regulate in the open.  With this in mind, our agency recently adopted Clarity—which we describe as “[p]roviding transparency to market participants about our rules and processes”—as one of the four core values of the CFTC.[2] 

  • SIFMA Statement On The Consolidated Audit Trail

    Date 10/12/2019

    SIFMA today released the following statement from Kenneth E. Bentsen, Jr., SIFMA President and CEO, on the Consolidated Audit Trail:

    “SIFMA remains very concerned about investor data security of the CAT. SIFMA and its members are supportive of the CAT and its regulatory intent but have repeatedly expressed strong concerns regarding the risks to our customers’ sensitive financial data information, including the wholesale collection of personally identifiable information (PII) and transaction data being compiled in one place. This risk is further compounded by a lack of liability coverage for the broker dealers who are obligated to report to the CAT. Allowing twenty-four self-regulatory organizations (“SROs”) to have the ability to bulk download and store all such data, including transactions and customer data, on their own systems, dramatically increases exposure to data breach and theft. As SEC Chairman Clayton rightly noted at a Senate Banking hearing today, data security must be a paramount concern with a database this large. Allowing up to 3,000 users at twenty-four different SROs to hold the data internally with personnel having unfettered access makes absolutely no sense. SIFMA believes that all surveillance and analysis on CAT data should occur within a highly controlled, limited access secure analytics environment within the FINRA CAT Processor and only the SEC and FINRA should have access to the full database. The SROs should only access their own transaction data and should not have access to the customer database. We urge the SEC to address these concerns immediately.”

  • Statement Of Commissioner Dawn D. Stump For CFTC Open Meeting - Proposed Rule: Capital Requirements For Swap Dealers And Major Swap Participants – Reopening The Comment Period And Requesting Additional Comment

    Date 10/12/2019

    I would like to thank the staff of DSIO, OGC, and OCE for their efforts on further refining the capital rules that would apply to those swap dealers who are not otherwise prudentially regulated.  I realize that everyone at the Commission is juggling multiple concurrent priorities and I am grateful for the considerable amount of time you all devoted to our questions and the modifications in the document that were accepted based on our recommendations.
