CMC Meets with Sen. Scott Brown’s Staff

CMC met with Senator Scott Brown’s Legislative Director today. Although Sen. Brown (Republican – Massachusetts) does not sit on the Banking or Agriculture Committees, he is very interested in derivatives issues because many of his constituent firms in Massachusetts (especially financial companies) are heavy users of derivatives. Being a moderate Republican, he is also a very important swing vote in the Senate on several pieces of legislation. CMC discussed the following issues at a broad 30,000-foot level with the staffer: position limits and bona-fide hedging, and international co-ordination of derivatives regulations across various jurisdictions. Sen. Brown’s office is also very interested in forex swaps, and expressed an interest to continue an ongoing discussion with CMC on that topic.
