In April, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission issued a request for information styled “Project Kiss,” designed as an agency-wide review of the CFTC’s rules, regulations and practices with the aim of making them simpler, less burdensome and less costly. After several years of new rulemaking and advances in technology and market customs, Project Kiss is a welcomed opportunity for market participants to share their ideas with the CFTC about how to improve the US regulatory regime for commodity derivatives. Firms that trade commodity derivatives, however, should thoughtfully consider what potential changes they might bring to the CFTC’s attention. This webinar will explore some of the changes that firms trading commodity derivatives might advance, and discuss some of the pros and cons of advocating for certain changes.
