FIA PTG raises Concerns with the Swap Execution Facility Rule Proposal

FIA PTG also raised concerns with the proposed execution method flexibility encouraging the Commission to maintain minimum standards that protect multilateral, competitive and transparent execution methods on SEFs. Finally, FIA PTG said that the proposal would significantly alter the current straight-through processing requirements for SEF trading, which have successfully reduced market and operational risk.
