GFMA Submits Comments to the Malaysian Regulatory Agencies on Trade Repository Reporting Requirement for Derivatives

The Global Foreign Exchange Division (GFXD) of GFMA provides comments to the Securities Commission Malaysia (SC), Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) and Perbadanan Insurans Deposit Malaysia (PIDM) (collectively the Regulatory Agencies) on the Joint Public Consultation Paper on Trade Repository Reporting Requirement for Over-the-Counter Derivatives.

Many of the current legislative and regulatory reforms will have a significant impact upon the operation of the global FX market and GFXD feels it is vital that the potential consequences are fully understood and that new regulation improves efficiency and reduces risk, not vice versa.

GFXD is supportive of the approach outlined in the joint consultation paper and provide specific comments with respect to the requirements and your questions. In addition, GFXD particularly welcomes the Regulatory Agencies’ to harmonise reporting requirements under the regime with those that will apply internationally.
