CCS’s Garcia Reports on Futures Industry Association Conference
Bridget Garcia of Cipperman Compliance Services recently attended the Futures Industry Association Law and Compliance Conference in Washington. The well-attended event addressed cryptocurrencies and related regulation, a major issue of interest to the industry. Panels discussed the evolution and purpose of cryptocurrencies and how the CFTC, SEC and FINRA will carve up regulatory responsibilities. Moving onto more tactical matters, one panel discussed regulatory hot topics, including AML and GDPR, and another panel tackled CCO responsibilities. Day 3 focused heavily on swaps and derivatives.
