Three Katten attorneys will participate in the "Security Futures – The Incredible Potentially Morphing Financial Instrument" webinar at 10:00 a.m. (ET) on Thursday, April 30. Financial Markets and Funds special counsel Gary DeWaal will moderate the discussion, and partner Kevin Foley and special counsel Michael Foley will participate as speakers.
The webinar will discuss the recent transformation of the KOSPI 200 from a broad-based security index contract, subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the CFTC, to a narrow-based security index futures contract, subject to the joint jurisdiction of the CFTC and the SEC. It will provide an overview of the regulatory regimes governing these products, including a discussion of the authority of US persons to access, and US broker-dealers and futures commission merchants to offer, foreign security futures. Speakers will discuss case studies involving recently transformed futures contracts, as well as reference analogies to cryptosecurities and non-cryptosecurities.
