MFA Comment Letter to CFTC Regarding Request To Exempt Certain Over-the-Counter Swaps From Certain of the Requirements Imposed by Commission Regulation 35.2

MFA submitted a comment letter to the CFTC in response to the Commission’s request for comments on the CME and CBOT’s petition to exempt certain agricultural OTC swaps from certain provisions of Regulation 35.2. MFA supports the petition as we believe that the requested exemption will facilitate risk management, improve liquidity, enhance OTC market transparency, and reduce systemic risk.
