Washington, DC - The U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission's Market Risk Advisory Committee (MRAC) will hold a public meeting on September 9 via teleconference. CFTC Commissioner Rostin Behnam is the sponsor of MRAC.

At this meeting, the MRAC will receive a status report from the Interest Rate Benchmark Reform Subcommittee and vote on its recommendation regarding plain-English disclosure materials. The MRAC will also discuss other issues involving the transition from the London Inter-bank Offered Rate (LIBOR) to risk-free reference rates, including central counterparty (CCP) adjustments to discounting/price alignment interest and the clearing treatment for certain physically-settled swaptions.

'On September 9th, the MRAC will consider the first recommendation from the Interest Rate Benchmark Reform Subcommittee regarding disclosures included with new derivatives that reference LIBOR and other IBORs. I appreciate the Subcommittee's hard work in developing these plain-English disclosures for use by market participants, and commend them for this important contribution to the benchmark reform effort,' said Commissioner Behnam.

A formal agenda for this meeting is forthcoming and can be viewed at CFTC Events.
