SEC Finalizes Part of Cross-Border Swaps Rules

The SEC voted to finalize an initial set of rules for cross-border swaps transactions.

They also include provisions allowing overseas participants to seek substituted compliance requirements and clarifications on the commission’s anti-fraud authority.

Specifically, the rules detail what transactions U.S. and non-U.S. persons must count against the thresholds to register as a security-based swaps dealer or as a major security-based swaps participant.
