The CFTC with Commissioner Summer Mersinger

The Commodity Futures Trading Commission regulates commodities futures markets and enforces the Commodity Exchange Act in the US. As such, it sets the tone for much of the global regulation governing the sector. In such a global, dynamic and evolving market, the CFTC has its work cut out. It also has teeth, exacting significant fines on transgressors through its enforcement arm. What is the CFTC? How is it constructed and managed? How can it provide stable and forward looking regulation in such a volatility and changing sector? What are the challenges it faces triggered by energy transition and digitization (and digital assets)? We are delighted to have Commissioner Summer Mersinger join us to discuss all these points and more.
