CFTC’s Global Markets Advisory Committee to Meet on April 15

The Commodity Futures Trading Commission’s (CFTC) Global Markets Advisory Committee (GMAC) announced that it will hold a public meeting on Monday, April 15, 2019, at CFTC’s Washington, DC headquarters.

CFTC Commissioner Dawn D. Stump, who sponsors the GMAC, also announced the new members of GMAC. In addition, Commissioner Stump appointed Angie Karna, a managing director at Nomura Securities International, Inc., as the GMAC Chair for a one-year term. Andrée Goldsmith, special counsel in CFTC’s Division of Clearing and Risk, was also named the Designated Federal Officer for the GMAC.

At this meeting, the GMAC will hear presentations on how regulators are fulfilling the 2009 G20 directive regarding the OTC derivatives market. Specifically, the GMAC will examine the status of the four key pillars of the original G20 directive:

  • trading on exchanges or electronic trading platforms
  • clearing through central counterparties
  • margin requirements for non-centrally cleared derivatives
  • data reporting to trade repositories

The meeting is open to the public with seating on a first-come, first-served basis. Members of the public may also listen to the meeting via conference call using a domestic toll-free telephone or international toll or toll-free number to connect to a live, listen-only audio feed.
