13A. Bankruptcy Basics: Failure is an Option - Pulling the Plug Quickly and Cleanly

Empire Room
This session will explore what is supposed to happen when an FCM insolvency “goes according to plan.” The discussion will focus on issues involved in the insolvency of a stand-alone FCM, a joint BD/FCM and a joint SD/FCM, with particular emphasis on the interplay between the Bankruptcy Code, SIPA, Part 190 of the CFTC Rules, Title II of the Dodd-Frank Act, and DCO default management procedures.
