NEW YORK, July 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Terrapinn has just released a report covering everything professional traders need to know about Swap Execution Facilities (SEFs) now being implemented as a result of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.
Under Title VII of Dodd-Frank, over-the-counter (OTC) derivatives trading is now subject to unprecedented regulations designed to increase transparency and reduce systemic risk across the industry.
In addition to the required reporting of transactions and use of central clearinghouses, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) has mandated that the majority of swaps trading take place on tightly regulated SEF platforms.
