The panel will discuss the regulatory and legal risk issues to be addressed as part of the new account opening process, including CFTC, exchange and NFA requirements, bankruptcy issues, and capacity and authority requirements. This discussion will be a refresher for some, centering around current case law and the legal basis for what is generally found in customer agreements.
