CMC Discusses Senate Agriculture Committee Roundtable on MF Global

On this week’s policy call, CMC staff reported to our members on the Senate Ag Committee’s MF Global roundtable held on Tuesday, April 3.  CMC was one of only four groups invited to participate at this select event to discuss our thoughts and recommendations regarding potential legislative/ governmental regulatory / self-regulatory fixes to minimize the chances of another MF Global – like situation from occurring again.

Based on numerous prior discussions within our membership and with outside groups, CMC offered ten recommendations that followed from three core principles.  Click here to read CMC’s recommendations.

The event was moderated by former CFTC Commissioner Mike Dunn, and the other groups invited to share their thoughts were the National Futures Association, the Futures Industry Association and the Commodity Customers Coalition.
