Future of commodity trading in the US
Heath Tarbert, chairman and chief executive of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, joins Mark Sobel, US Chairman of OMFIF, to discuss the CFTC’s work in managing the Covid-19 crisis, its current and future priorities, cross-border co-operation and the role of financial regulation. The CFTC is the predominant US derivatives regulator, overseeing activities involving interest rate swaps, energy and commodity futures. As interest rate swaps represent a global market, the CFTC’s role is closely linked to European financial markets alongside US financial regulation.
