Margin for Uncleared Swaps

Overview

The "Prudential Regulators" have established the margin requirements for uncleared swaps and security-based swaps entered into by bank; the CFTC has established the margin requirements for uncleared swaps entered into by other types of swap dealers; the SEC has proposed margin requirements for security-based swaps entered into by security-based swap dealers other than banks. FINRA has adopted a rule that governs the collection by broker-dealers of margin on credit default swaps.
