During 2012 SEFCON III John Lothian News interviewed five key members of the WMBA. Click here to see all the interviews.

Chris Giancarlo, executive vice president, GFI Group worries that US regulation may not be balanced, and that it is mismatched with non-US markets. One area in particular that concerns him is on voice broking of OTC derivatives. Though the CFTC has pushed hard for more electronic execution of OTC trades in its Dodd-Frank Act rulemaking, Giancarlo says many of these types of transactions are illiquid and best done as voice negotiated transactions. In an interview with John Lothian News Editor-at-Large Doug Ashburn at 2012 SEFCON III, Giancarlo says the US needs “good regulation, but with the maximum amount of flexibility.”
