— The Commodity Futures Trading Commission’s Market Risk Advisory Committee (MRAC) will hold a public meeting on Tuesday, July 21, 2020 via teleconference in accordance with the agency’s implementation of social distancing due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. CFTC Commissioner Rostin Behnam is the sponsor of the MRAC.

At the meeting, the MRAC will receive status updates from its subcommittees: Climate-Related Market Risk, CCP Risk and Governance, Market Structure, and Interest Rate Benchmark Reform.  The meeting will also include a discussion regarding market activity in the early part of 2020, immediately following the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States.

“In light of unprecedented market volatility following the outbreak of the Covid-19 virus in the U.S., the public and Commission will benefit greatly from the MRAC members’ perspectives on market structure performance and functionality as experienced by market participants during these unique stress cycles. I look forward to this timely discussion in addition to receiving important milestone updates from all the MRAC subcommittee chairs. As our markets continue to adjust to fulfill new demands and address new concerns, it is important that dialogues like these remain open and available to the public,” said Commissioner Behnam.

A formal agenda for this meeting is forthcoming.
