Margin Requirements for Uncleared Swaps for Swap Dealers and Major Swap Participants
Document Number: 2019-22955
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-10-22
Agency: Commodity Futures Trading Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (``Commission'' or ``CFTC'') is seeking comment on proposed amendments to the margin requirements for uncleared swaps for swap dealers (``SD'') and major swap participants (``MSP'') for which there is no prudential regulator. The proposed amendments would add the European Stability Mechanism (``ESM'') to the list of entities that are expressly excluded from the definition of financial end user and correct an erroneous cross- reference in the Commission's regulations.
