Giancarlo Nominated to Head CFTC
Christopher Giancarlo has been nominated by the Trump administration to be the next Chairman of the US Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC). Giancarlo made his first public appearance since the nomination at the FIA Boca event, where he advocated a new agenda for the CFTC that focused on fostering economic growth, enhancing US financial markets and “right-sizing” the regulators’ footprint. “I am grateful that the White House made the announcement before todays’ speech,” he told reporters afterwards. Commenting on his new agenda for the CFTC he added: “You can read into it what you will as to the extent to which I think it is in alignment with where the President wishes to go with his approach to financial regulation.”
