News: The echo of CFTC’s approval on Final SEF Rules

The Commission’s five members voted in a public meeting on new platforms for swaps that will bring bilateral trading to an end, and transfer trades to centralized, transparent marketplaces. A lot of criticism on these decisions is already loudly expressed from some of the commissioners themselves, stated at the vote in their prepared statements and also SIFMA that released a statement arguing that the new rules 'will negatively impact investors and hinder the ability of American businesses to manage risk.'
