Washington, DC —The U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC or Commission) today approved the application of ICAP Global Derivatives Limited (IGDL) for temporary registration as a swap execution facility (SEF). IGDL is a private limited company registered in the United Kingdom and is a wholly-owned subsidiary of ICAP Holdings (UK) Limited, a private limited company registered in the United Kingdom.
A SEF is a category of CFTC registered entities created by the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 to provide greater pre-trade and post-trade transparency to the swaps market. IGDL will be required, as will all future temporarily and fully registered SEFs, to demonstrate continued compliance with all applicable provisions of the Commodity Exchange Act and Commission regulations, including part 37, and any future regulations, amendments, guidance, and interpretations issued by the Commission. As a next step, the Commission will undertake a substantive review of IGDL’s application for full registration.
