MFA submitted initial comments to the SEC and the CFTC on regulatory initiatives in each agencys purview under the Dodd-Frank Act. MFA supports a renewed regulatory framework that will minimize systemic risk, strengthen investor protection, and promote market discipline and integrity. We recognize that the Dodd-Frank Act reframes the overall regulatory landscape, but that the SEC and the CFTC, among other agencies, will be responsible for implementing key details surrounding many of the crucial provisions. We also recognize that many of these areas are complex and new to regulatory oversight, and we pledge our support in helping the agencies address the range of issues in which our members have expertise. Please see our SEC Letter (attachment 1 and attachment 2) and our CFTC Letter for greater detail.
