Statement

ABA Applauds CFTC Final Rule on De Minimis Exception

“We applaud the CFTC for today’s final rule, which will facilitate the ability of insured depository institutions to help their customers manage risk by offering swaps in connection with their loans. Today’s action – which ABA has long supported – will ensure businesses can retain these activities within the banking system rather than being forced into more costly alternatives to hedge risk. This action will further promote greater financial efficiency and economic growth within the parameters of sound risk management.”
