Kennyhertz Perry Partner Braden Perry Speaking on CFTC Margin Rules for Uncleared Swaps

Kennyhertz Perry Partner Braden Perry was selected as a panelist for the January 22, 2016 Webcast: CFTC Proposed Rule for the Cross Board Application of the of the Margin Requirements. The panel will provide an overview and discussion of the latest changes to the CFTC’s rules and the compliance with the new requirements.

To address the margin requirements for uncleared cross-border swaps not subject to U.S. banking regulations, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) proposed a rule on June 29, 2015. Under the proposed rule, if the duties of a non-US CSE are guaranteed by a US person or if a non-US CSE is a “Foreign Consolidated Subsidiary,” then the non-US covered swap entity (CSE) is obliged to apply the same margin rules for uncleared swaps as a US CSE.  If the final rule is adopted as proposed, entities trading with non-US CSEs will be indirectly impacted.

In this two-hour LIVE Webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders assembled by The Knowledge Group will help companies understand the important aspects of this significant topic. They will provide an in-depth discussion of the proposed rules as well as best practices to mitigate potential compliance risks.

Key topics include:
