Washington, DC – CFTC Commissioner Rostin Behnam issued the following statement regarding the Confirmation of Dawn Stump and Dan Berkovitz:


“I congratulate Dan Berkovitz and Dawn Stump on their U.S. Senate confirmations to be Commissioners at the Commodity Futures Trading Commission. I look forward to building on the working relationships I’ve had the privilege of developing with each over our many years in Washington.  Each will arrive at the CFTC with an unparalleled wealth of knowledge of and direct experience in the derivatives markets.  The culmination of a full commission, the first since 2014, is an important step towards completing the critical work mandated after the 2008 financial crisis and addressing the many important issues and emerging challenges ahead.”
