The Division of Swap Dealer and Intermediary Oversight issued relief exempting commodity trading advisers from having to maintain certain records regarding clients and subscribers at their main business office, as they otherwise would be required by CFTC rules (click here to access CFTC Rule 4.33 and here for CFTC Rule 4.7(c)(2)). Under the exemptive relief, CTAs may maintain required records with third-party record-keepers although they remain responsible for the failure of such third parties to maintain books and records as otherwise required by CFTC rules. To take advantage of the relief, a CTA must file a notice of claim with DSIO. DSIO previously granted similar relief to commodity pool operators (click here to access DSIO No Action Letter 14-114).
