CFTC Seeks Input on New Market Risk Advisory Committee
The Commodity Futures Trading Commission is seeking comments on potential topics for discussion at future Market Risk Advisory Committee (MRAC) meetings. The CFTC indicated that suggested discussion topics should (i) relate to matters of public concern to clearinghouses, exchanges, intermediaries, market makers, end-users and the CFTC regarding systemic issues that threaten the stability of the derivatives markets and other financial markets, and/or (ii) assist the CFTC in identifying and understanding the impact and implications of an evolving market structure and movement of risk across clearinghouses, exchanges, intermediaries, market makers and end-users.
The CFTC additionally is seeking nominations for individuals to serve on the newly formed MRAC. The CFTC expects the MRAC to have approximately 20–25 members drawn from various entities with interests in the derivatives markets.
