    Washington, DC – The Commodity Futures Trading Commission’s (CFTC) Division of Swap Dealer and Intermediary Oversight (DSIO) today issued a no-action letter to mortgage real estate investment trusts (mREITs). The letter states that DSIO will not recommend that the CFTC take enforcement action against the operators of mREITs for failure to register as commodity pool operators under the Commodity Exchange Act and the CFTC’s regulations provided that the mREIT satisfies certain criteria including compliance with a de minimis threshold.
