The Commodity Futures Trading Commission’s (CFTC) Division of Swap Dealer and Intermediary Oversight (DSIO) today released a letter providing guidance to registered futures commission merchants (FCMs). The letter is intended to identify a situation whereby FCMs may be inappropriately utilizing an omnibus account with their clearing FCM in which they are combining segregated and secured funds in one account.

The letter is available at the Commission’s Web site:
