Practices: Hedge Funds, Derivatives & Commodities

Hedge funds partner Isabel Dische (New York) and hedge funds counsel Molly Moore (Washington, D.C.) were quoted an April 17 Compliance Intelligence article titled “Swap Margin Segregation Decision Awaits IAs.” Ms. Dische and Ms. Moore examine how swap dealers and their counterparties must comply with the new Commodity Futures Trading Commission rules mandated under the Dodd-Frank Act. Ms. Dische notes, “Any buy-side participant is going to have to decide what their approach is going to be,” whether or not the firm has a segregation agreement in place. Ms. Moore also highlighted that CCOs should look for and respond to the notification from swap dealer counterparties in the coming weeks.
