WHAT: CFTC to hold Public Meeting on Fifth Series of Proposed Rules. Topics to be discussed:

1) Swap data repositories

2) Real-time public reporting of swap transaction data

3) Protection of collateral of counterparties to uncleared swaps, and treatment of securities in a portfolio margining account in a commodity broker bankruptcy

4) Data recordkeeping

5) Issuance of an Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking involving Protection of Cleared Swaps Customers Before and After Commodity Broker Bankruptcies

BENEFIT OF PARTICIPATING: Market participants will gain insight into nuances of 1) swap reporting proposals, including the highly discussed "real time reporting requirement" and 2) insolvency issues that customers of a swap dealer can expect to face in the event of a dealer bankruptcy.

BOTTOM LINE: If you trade or deal in derivatives (or someday expect to trade or deal in derivatives) or are a bank custodian that intends to service clients that trade or deal in derivatives, then you probably have an interest in the topics that will be covered by this roundtable, in general, and the dealer insolvency issues, in particular.
