The commodity markets – whether they be agricultural, metals, energy, gas or power – are a vital means to protect against volatile price movements.

GFMA has formed a Commodities Working Group (CWG) to focus on regulatory issues specific to banks operating in the financial and physical commodities markets. The CWG’s work centers around the creation of a more level European regulatory playing field for the commodity markets. Other priorities include embedding new transparency requirements in the European wholesale gas and power markets; opposing position limits on a global scale; and working with the G-20 on issues such as IOSCO’s consultation on the Functioning and Oversight of Oil Price Reporting Agencies and capital charges for non-banks in Europe.
