With only two Commissioners currently remaining on the CFTC, Commissioner Dawn Stump, finds herself as the deciding vote on virtually every issue coming before the CFTC, at least until new members of the Commission are confirmed by the U.S. Senate. Her perspective as a Commissioner since 2017, including her service as the sponsor of the Global Markets Advisory Committee, combined with her background having been at the forefront of the Dodd Frank legislation at the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry and her years of service at both the Futures Industry Association and the NYSE give her a truly unique perspective on not only where we are on financial regulation, but where we are heading.
This roundtable discussion will cover an array of developments at the CFTC and also focus on FinTech and cryptocurrency/digital asset issues facing the Commission and other financial regulators.
