The Commodity Futures Trading Commission extended previously granted no-action relief exempting (1) certain inter-affiliates’ swaps from the Commission’s trade execution requirement, and (2) affiliated counterparties in certain non-US jurisdictions from complying with certain so-called “outward-facing swap conditions.” These new extensions will expire at the latest on different dates in December 2016. (Click here for additional information on these matters in the article, “CFTC Extends No-Action Relief to Certain Affiliated Counterparties” in the November 20, 2015 edition of Corporate & Financial Weekly Digest by Katten Muchin Rosenman LLP.) The CFTC also announced it will stop issuing and collecting data related to its monthly Index Investment Data Report. The last report will be issued this week for the month of October 2015.
