MFA Submits Comments to CFTC in Support of Amended SDR Access Rule

The Managed Funds Association (MFA) submitted a comment letter to the CFTC to express MFA’s strong support of the interim final rule on “Swap Data Repositories – Access to SDR Data by Market Participants.”  MFA’s letter noted that without the CFTC’s formal revision to Section 49.17(f)(2) of its final SDR rules, a counterparty to an anonymously traded and cleared swap could have secured private information from an SDR regarding the identity of the other counterparty to that swap, or that counterparty’s clearing member.
