Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (“Dodd-Frank” or the “Act”)

In July 2010, the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (“Dodd-Frank” or the “Act”) was signed into U.S. federal law. The Act made changes to the financial regulatory environment in the United States as a way of promoting financial stability by, among other things, improving accountability and transparency in the financial system.

Objective

Within the Act, Title VII addressed concerns regarding the regulation of the over-the-counter (OTC) swaps markets, and in particular required certain OTC derivatives and FX instruments to be traded on a regulated Swap Execution Facility (SEF).
