Risk Metrics for FCMs That Do Swaps

NFA Financial Requirements Section 17 requires swap dealers (SD) and major swap participants (MSP) to file the financial, operational, risk management and other information required by NFA in the form and manner prescribed by NFA. Risk monitoring will be a major function of this regulation, and SDs and MSPs will be able to report monthly through the NFA’s electronic WinJammer. Although the first filing deadline isn’t until Jan. 31, 2018, the NFA has provided what risk metrics will be needed. For more information, go here.
