“Mary Miller, the U.S. Treasury Department’s undersecretary for domestic finance, said regulators could eventually decide against naming any asset managers systemically important.
“’That’s certainly an option,’ Miller said in an interview with Bloomberg Television today. ‘We have to determine are there risks, and if there is a determination that there are risks, then you have to think about what are the remedies.

Billionaire Ken Griffin, chief executive officer of hedge fund Citadel Advisors LLC, also will participate.”
