Bloomberg: Regulator will restrict clearinghouse ownership

Bloomberg reports that the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) will propose new ownership guidelines for swaps clearinghouses, exchanges and trading systems on Oct. 1 that may require several existing organizations to change their structure.

The recommendation is part of the CFTC's implementation of the sweeping Dodd-Frank financial legislation that, among other measures, is intended to more thoroughly regulate the OTC derivatives markets.

The proposed rules reportedly will be listed for public review and comment.
