Subscribe to our newsletter

The US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has indicated that it will ease the registration requirements for the contenders in the race to establish a central clearing counterparty for the credit default swap (CDS) market. According to market reports, the regulator is aiming to expedite the creation of clearing counterparties and standardise the criteria to evaluate risk exposure, thus increasing transparency in the market.

Central counterparty contenders could be eligible for exemption from certain agency registration requirements if they meet certain conditions, including allowing the SEC access to conduct on-site inspections of the firm’s records, facilities and systems.
