Client Memorandum

Created date

6/3/2009

The National Conference of Insurance Legislators (“NCOIL”) is drafting model legislation (the “Model Bill”) that would subject credit default swaps (“CDS”) to a state regulatory regime closely modeled on that regulating financial guaranty insurance in New York. This memorandum discusses NCOIL’s plans for a state CDS regulatory regime and explores the implications of such a regime on the CDS market.
