October 6, 2017

Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) Commissioner Brian Quintenz released the following statement on the Treasury Department’s second report on the Administration’s core principles of financial regulation:

“The United States has the largest, deepest, and most liquid financial markets in the world. Derivatives are used in virtually every segment of the U.S. and global economies, covering nearly every conceivable type of commodity. It is for this reason that it is so important that we get the oversight of these markets right so that market participants - from farmers to multinational companies - have the necessary tools to appropriately manage their risk."
