Overview

On December 18, 2019, the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) adopted rule amendments, guidance, and a related order that complete the Commission’s regulatory framework in connection with security-based swaps.  Publication of the rule amendments in the Federal Register triggers the compliance schedule within which security-based swap entities must register with the Commission and such entities and other security-based swap market participants must come into compliance with previously adopted rules pursuant to Title VII of the Dodd-Frank Act. 

During this One-Hour Briefing, Curtis A. Doty, Matthew F. Kluchenek and Marlon Paz of Mayer Brown LLP will discuss:

  • The compliance schedule for the various aspects of the new regulatory framework; 
  • How to identify transactions that are security-based swaps;
  • How to determine eligibility for the de minimis exemption from dealer registration; 
  • The principal regulatory obligations of security-based swap dealers, including how the framework applies to broker-dealers and banks;
  • Counterparty documentation requirements;
  • The extent to which compliance with CFTC swap regulations will satisfy obligations under the Commission’s new framework; and
  • The cross-border application of the new framework.
