European Agricultural/Soft Commodities
In autumn 2016, FIA formed a new working group for members active or interested in agricultural commodities. The group meets monthly in-person in London.
FIA's Agricultural Working Group comprises individuals from members who undertake regulated business in agricultural futures, options or other derivatives which are traded on or under the rules of a regulated market or MTF.
The Working Group addresses all aspects of European and international regulatory policy which affects the agricultural derivatives markets. This includes:
- monitoring, considering and commenting on the impact of directives, statutes, laws, rules, regulations or recommendations within the current regulatory framework;
- discussion and analysis of practical compliance issues surrounding new regulations and establishing operational sub-groups if appropriate to provide support;
- reviewing and providing input into FIA papers, including responses to, as appropriate, the European Commission, ESMA, HM Treasury, the FCA, particularly in relation to consultation papers issued by them, and to other organizations as may be relevant to the purposes of the Working Group.
