    CFTC’s Market Risk Advisory Committee to Meet on April 25, 2017

    Washington, DC - The U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission’s (Commission) Market Risk Advisory Committee (MRAC) will hold a public meeting on April 25, 2017 at the CFTC's Washington, DC, headquarters.

    CFTC Commissioner Sharon Bowen is the sponsor of this Advisory Committee.

    At this meeting, the MRAC will discuss: (1) the staff’s response to the CRM Subcommittee’s recommendations, which the MRAC adopted and also recommended that the Commission consider at the April 25, 2017 MRAC meeting, on how Central Counterparties (CCPs) can further enhance their efforts in preparing for the default of a significant clearing member; (2) cybersecurity trends; and (3) how well the derivatives markets are currently functioning, including the impact and implications of the evolving structure of these markets on the movement of risk across market participants.
