Event: Advisory Committee Meetings

The Global Markets Advisory Committee Will Meet on October 25

October 25, 2021

The Global Markets Advisory Committee (GMAC) will hold a public meeting on Monday, October 25, 2021. The meeting will begin at 8:45 a.m. (EDT) via teleconference in accordance with the Commodity Futures Trading Commission’s implementation of social distancing due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Commissioner Dawn Stump is the sponsor of the GMAC. 

At this meeting, the GMAC will hear presentations and provide dialogue on matters related to the U.S. Treasury market which, given market interconnections, is vitally important to the proper functioning of the derivatives markets overseen by the CFTC. In that regard, the GMAC will hear presentations regarding the recent stresses in the U.S. Treasury market and proposals for Treasury market reforms to mitigate against future stresses. The GMAC will also hear presentations related to the implementation of recent Dodd-Frank Act reforms, including issues related to (1) swap data reporting; (2) uncleared margin; and (3) swap dealer capital substituted compliance.    

Members of the public may access a live feed via streaming or phone. The live feed will be streamed on cftc.gov.
