- The Dodd-Frank Act created the swap execution facility (SEF), a new regulated marketplace for the trading of swaps. The Commission proposed rules regulating these facilities on January 2011, and is expected to finalize these rules imminently. On May 1 at 12pm, market participants and industry observers will engage in a thoughtful discussion of a number of significant issues raised by the SEF rulemaking, including: (a) block trades; (b) the role of voice-brokers in the new SEF environment; (c) the procedure for Request-for-Quotes (RFQs); and (d) the changing relationship between instruments traded on SEFs versus those traded on futures exchanges, that is the "futurization" of swaps.
This "Off the Record" brown bag luncheon program is sponsored by the Derivatives, Securitization and Project Finance Committee of the Corporation, Finance and Securities Law Section.
Remarks made during “Off the Record” programs may not be used for publication.
