Better Markets Statement on SEC Adopting a Final Cross-Border Derivatives Rule

Washington, DC — Better Markets President and CEO Dennis Kelleher released this statement on the SEC adopting a final cross-border derivatives rule earlier today:

“We applaud the SEC for including cross-border security-based swaps in the de minimis calculation for swap dealer registration. Registration is a critical element of any regulatory framework designed to oversee our financial markets. However, while today’s vote is an important step forward in ensuring security-based swaps are subject to appropriate regulation, it is only a small piece of the derivatives regulatory regime. More work needs to be done, including in particular issuance of final rules on clearing, trade execution, capital, and margin. We hope the SEC will move forward as quickly as possible to complete these important and overdue rules.”
