Comment Letter to the CFTC on Swap Data Repositories

MFA submitted a comment letter to the CFTC on Swap Data Repositories. In our letter, MFA requests that the CFTC add additional confidentiality safeguards to the proposed rule to protect the privacy of swap data and expand the requirements to include an SDR standard of care. We also support the CFTCs prohibition on SDRs using data for commercial purposes. Although we support giving foreign regulators appropriate access to data maintained by SDRs, we strongly recommend that the CFTC actively participate in facilitating appropriate access and confirming a foreign regulators relevant authority.
