The second phase of the CFTC position limits rules comes into effect in January 2023. In this episode of the DerivSource’s podcast Living the Trade Lifecycle, we speak to Andrew Castello, vice president, head of reference data and Justin Hasnat, senior manager, Databank operations at FIA Tech about how firms can harness data to comply with the new position limit rules and ensure they are making a “reasonable, good faith effort” determination of the economic equivalence of an OTC swap compared to any of the 25 core-reference futures contracts.
Tune in to hear about some of the common challenges firms face as they prepare for this second phase of the rules and how FIA Tech’s Databank can help.
