What's in a Name? Understanding the New Dodd-Frank Rules Defining "Swap Dealer," "Major Swap Participant" and "Eligible Contract Participant"
June 28, 2012
In this recorded seminar, partner Carolyn Jackson and senior associate Nathaniel Lalone discuss the final CFTC and SEC rules defining swap entities. Additional topics covered in this program include potentially available exemptions from swap dealer registration, safe harbour calculations for falling outside the definition of "major swap participant", a "look-through" provision in the definition of "eligible contract participant" presenting challenges for fund vehicles engaging in certain foreign exchange transactions, and possible international application of these rules to swaps market participants located outside the United States.
