Putting the Market Back Together (Benzinga Radio)

By | August 15, 2011

I’ve been meaning to post this one for a few weeks.  Just before the debt ceiling debate ended and S&P did its thing, I spoke with Benzinga Radio about the progress we’ve seen since the passing of Dodd-Frank.  Yes – there has been progress (keep any eye out in the next few days for some proof of progress we at TABB  Group have pulled together). We talk about everything from Dodd-Frank’s effectiveness in dealing with what caused the credit crisis to the need for a swap execution mandate.  One of my comments from the transcription:

“I’ve spent a lot of time looking at swap execution facilities and the swap execution space. However, I’m not completely convinced, at this point, that we really needed to mandate electronic trading of swaps. I think if clearing and reporting requirements were in place, that kind of trading transparency would have arose naturally.”
