Regulation of Over-The-Counter Derivatives

New York, New York
13 February 2012
Hosted By: The Journal of Corporate and Financial Law & The Fordham Corporate Law Center

This symposium, hosted jointly by The Journal of Corporate and Financial Law & The Fordham Corporate Law Center on 13 February 2012, examined the new regulations imposed on over-the-counter (OTC) derivatives in light of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. NERA Vice President Dr. Sharon Brown-Hruska, a former Commissioner and Acting Chairman of the US Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), joined a panel of experts to discuss the efforts of the CFTC, the Securities and Exchange Commission, and other regulatory agencies to eliminate bilateral derivatives trading and move derivatives trading onto centralized clearinghouses and exchanges. Dr. Brown-Hruska and her co-panelists also examined the benefits and drawbacks to new legislation seeking to centralize counterparty credit risk and to increase the transparency and efficiency of the OTC derivatives market.
