    Additional Information

    The Dodd-Frank Act provides that the CFTC and the SEC, in consultation with the Federal Reserve, must work jointly to further define the meaning of certain key terms including “swap dealer,” “security-based swap dealer,” “major swap participant” and “major security-based swap participant.” Title VII also provides for the registration of dealers and major participants, and will subject them to a number of statutory requirements including capital, margin and business conduct requirements.

    The discussion will focus on such issues as:

      • General parameters of dealer activity

      • Application of the dealer definitions among different types of asset classes

      • Application of the de minimis exception from the dealer definitions; and

      • Adequacy of the proposed major participant tests.
