How Many Swap Dealers? | CFTC and The Judean People’s Front
The CFTC updated their list of provisionally registered Swap Dealers (SDs) on 18th October 2013. A list of conditions under which a party must register (PDF) as a Swap Dealer can be found on their site. The list contains 87 separate entries, confirmed in a recent interview with Gary Gensler in The Washington Post.
I should point out that the list may only contain 86 unique different dealers, as the following appear to be duplicates:
- NORTHERN TRUST COMPANY THE
- THE NORTHERN TRUST COMPANY
This brings to mind the mix up between the Judean People's Front, and the The People's Front of Judea, not the same thing, search on YouTube for the full story.
