The MRAC has four subcommittees that report to the MRAC: Market Structure, CCP Risk & Governance, Future of Finance, and Climate-Related Market Risk. The Future of Finance subcommittee is dedicated to examining innovative and emerging technologies and market structures that affect risk in derivatives and related markets. The Climate-Related Market Risk subcommittee examines the regulation, supervision, and oversight of products designed to address climate-related risks, and efforts to ensure the resilience and integrity of derivatives and financial markets facing climate-related market risks. Both subcommittees may provide reports and recommendations to the MRAC.

There are five active Advisory Committees overseen by the CFTC. They were created to provide advice and recommendations to the Commission on a variety of regulatory and market issues that affect the integrity and competitiveness of U.S. markets. These committees facilitate communication between the Commission and market participants, other regulators, and academics. The views, opinions, and information expressed by the Advisory Committees are solely those of the respective Advisory Committee and do not necessarily reflect the views of the Commission, its staff, or the U.S. government.
