Industry Brief

The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) is seeking public input on the priorities and composition of the newly formed Market Risk Advisory Committee. In a request for comment published in the Federal Register, CFTC invited the public to propose topics upon which the MRAC should focus in making recommendations to the Commission on how to improve market structure and mitigate risk, and nominate individuals (including self-nominations) for MRAC membership in accordance with requirements outlined in the committee's charter. The MRAC’s mandate is to conduct public meetings and submit reports and recommendations to CFTC on matters of public concern to clearinghouses, exchanges, intermediaries, market makers, end-users and the Commission regarding systemic issues that threaten the stability of derivatives markets and other financial markets; and assist CFTC in identifying and understanding the impact and implications of an evolving market structure and movement of risk across clearinghouses, intermediaries, market makers and end-users. Suggestions and nominations should be e-mailed by Dec. 3 to MRAC_Comments@cftc.gov, or mailed to Petal Walker, Chief Counsel to Commissioner Sharon Bowen, CFTC, Three Lafayette Centre, 1155 21st St. NW, Washington, DC, 20581.
