Dodd-Frank led to a wide swath of new regulations that market participants have sought to understand as they seek to comply with them. As the CFTC finalizes the last few Dodd-Frank rules and transitions into enforcement, it is as critical as ever to understand the scope and potential application of the agency’s anti-evasion authority. The CFTC’s concern with preventing evasion of these rules has been evident from the beginning with the CFTC’s release further defining a “swap,” through the CFTC’s Cross-Border Guidance, and continuing to the recently-finalized rule on margin for uncleared swaps. This webinar will review the anti-evasion rules and interpretive guidance and discuss potential applications of the CFTC’s anti-evasion authority to assist market participants in facing ever-mounting regulatory compliance challenges.
