Abstract Share this page

A cornerstone of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (“DoddFrank”)1 is the requirement that swap counterparties transact standardized swaps on regulated multilateral platforms.2 Historically, swaps and other OTC derivatives in most asset classes were largely negotiated and executed privately between the parties away from any exchange or similar trading facility. According to the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (“CFTC”), the privately negotiated swaps market “provided little, if any, pre- or post-trade transparency.”3 As to the minority of swaps that did trade on multilateral platforms, these platforms were not generally subject to comprehensive, swaps-specific regulation. The swap trade execution requirement is one of the key requirements of the G-20 commitments4 and was intended partially to “provide pre- and post-trade transparency for end users, market participants, and regulators.
