UK CCPs should move contracts to US, says CFTC official

Clearers do not need an exemption to solve EU-US rule clash, conference told

Commodity Futures Trading Commission headquarters

The alternative would be for the CFTC or the European Securities and Markets Authority to provide an exemption, but Ananda Radhakrishnan, director in the division of clearing and risk at the CFTC, told a conference yesterday that he is "tired of providing exemptions".
