Regulatory Watch List for 2012: Commodity ETF Industry

February 16, 2012

Exchange-traded funds (ETFs) investing in commodities and their advisers, that are registered or required to be registered with the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) as commodity pool operators (CPOs) or commodity trading advisors (CTAs), are accustomed to navigating a broad range of complex laws and regulations. Due, in large part, to the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act and increased scrutiny by regulators of the financial and commodities markets, 2012 promises to bring a host of new regulatory requirements and issues for CPOs and CTAs.

James M. Cain, Daphne G. Frydman and Raymond A. Ramirez of Sutherland’s Corporate Practice Group co-authored an article in Securities and Banking Law360 that explores the five areas that members of the commodity ETF industry will want to watch in 2012.
