The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) today announced that staff will hold a public roundtable on January 31, 2013, from 9:30 a.m. to 3:15 p.m., to discuss the “futurization” of the swaps market. The roundtable will consist of four panels, discussing 1) general industry views and concerns regarding the conversion of swaps to futures in each asset class; 2) clearing and different margin requirements for swaps and futures; 3) transaction-related matters including appropriate block rules for swaps and futures; and 4) the effect of the conversion of swaps to futures on end-users.
