Proposed changes to the CFTC’s swap execution facility (SEF) rules could fundamentally change what classifies as a SEF and the products traded on venue. DerivCon 2019 delves into the detail of what these proposals mean, both for US and overseas market participants, and explores other key derivatives issues like Brexit, Benchmarks and Technology.

DerivCon was founded by and is sponsored by The Wholesale Markets Brokers’ Association, Americas (WMBAA)

What’s driving the decision to trade on venue versus off-venue?

Work is progressing on initiatives to adopt risk-free rates as an alternative to interbank offered rates. How is this influencing trading strategies, and how can trading of SOFR-linked products be encouraged?
