Commissioner Kristin N. Johnson Announces Agenda for the July 10 Market Risk Advisory Committee

June 29, 2023

Commissioner Kristin N. Johnson, sponsor of the Market Risk Advisory Committee (MRAC), today provided further insight on planned discussion topics for the upcoming MRAC meeting. The public meeting will be held on Monday, July 10, 2023 from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. (EDT) via teleconference.

“For years, the MRAC’s productive subcommittees have historically examined and proposed valuable interventions to the Commission addressing complex regulatory issues,” said Commissioner Johnson.

“As the CCP Risk and Governance, Market Structure, Climate-Related Risks and Future of Finance Subcommittees launch their workstreams, we anticipate continuing this tradition and elevating the distinctive and diverse contributions this Advisory Committee offers the Commission by harnessing the expertise of fellow market and prudential domestic and international regulators, market participants, consumers, academics and public interest advocates.

Johnson further noted the MRAC meeting will create a pathway to explore other current market risk topics and developments in the areas of central counterparty risk and governance, interest rate benchmark reform, market structure, climate-related risk, and innovative and emerging technologies affecting the derivatives and related financial markets. Advancing the efforts on existing consultations, the MRAC CCP Risk & Governance Committee will discuss the developments and planned discussions regarding CCP Resolution & Recovery; Margin and Collateral Guidelines; and Technology and Operations. The Market Structure Subcommittee will continue discussions on block implementation rules, capacity and concentration in the futures commission merchant market, Treasury market reform, and post-trade risk reduction. In addition, we will hear from experts and MRAC members regarding the development of consultations by the Future of Finance and Climate-Related Risk Subcommittees.

“This MRAC meeting offers an opportunity for us to celebrate the achievements of the Interest Rate Benchmark Reform Subcommittee. The transition to alternative reference rates and the related efforts of this Subcommittee illustrate an exceptional industry and regulatory community accomplishment.

“This upcoming MRAC meeting provides an opportunity for open discussion among MRAC members regarding the critical issues facing our markets, with specific focus on work that will be undertaken over the next several months at the subcommittee level,” concluded Commissioner Johnson.
