To add a new Main Contact or Beneficial Owner CFTC 19-17 Contact click "Choose Existing" to associate an already existing Natural Person profile, or click "Create New" to create a new Natural Person profile.
The Beneficial Owner CFTC 19-17 Contact addresses the requirement of CFTC Letter 19-17 (the “Letter”) which mandates that US FCMs that support separate account margining obtain and maintain current contact information for an authorized representative of the beneficial owner of each separately margined clearing account at the US FCM. CFTC oral guidance is that designation of a representative at the asset manager is not permissible, and that the designated Beneficial Owner CFTC 19-17 Contact should be a natural person at or within the structure of the Beneficial Owner, with sufficient authority to receive and address an FCM’s notice that an account of the Beneficial Owner has failed to timely pay margin.
If you're not sure if your Legal Entity owner profile requires a Beneficial Owner CFTC 19-17 Contact then please reach out to your reporting firm for more information.
