Join Partners Paul Architzel and Anjan Sahni and Special Counsel Petal Walker of WilmerHale's Futures and Derivatives Practice for a webinar that will review developments at the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) during 2017 and look ahead to 2018.

The panelists will review noteworthy CFTC-related events during 2017 and discuss developing issues for 2018, including:

  • enforcement priorities, such as spoofing and recordkeeping cases, and the new cooperation policy;
  • cryptocurrency oversight, specifically bitcoin futures contracts;
  • cross-border initiatives, including MiFID equivalence and CCP recognition;
  • unfinished business—proposed rulemaking on capital and swap dealer de minimis; and
  • challenges facing the CFTC in the coming year.

This webinar will be of interest to in-house legal and compliance staff at financial institutions, market participants, and end users.
