The Commodity Futures Trading Commission agreed to pay US $7 million to a whistleblower for information that led to a successful enforcement action. Although the whistleblower provided the CFTC with relevant original information, the CFTC noted that the information was not “particularly significant.” Moreover, the whistleblower provided limited assistance to the Commission because the individual “could not provide specifics . . . and did not understand how the violations under investigation worked.” Four other persons also sought recovery from the CFTC for the same matter; their requests were denied.
