Prior to the 2007 financial crisis, financial regulation was compartmentalized along lines of segmented financial instruments. With the exception of the regulation of swaps as described in chapter 14, post-crisis regulatory reform maintains this bifurcation of regulation along product lines between the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC). The SEC and the CFTC have begun to issue rules establishing a coordinated approach to regulating certain derivatives under the Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (widely known as the Dodd-Frank Act) in particular as they relate to swaps. This chapter discusses the jurisdiction of the SEC, what constitutes a security, sellers’ representations, consequences of securities, hedge funds, and derivatives regulation.

Keywords:   securities regulation, financial regulation, regulatory reform, SEC, CFTC, Dodd-Frank Act
