Lawyers were concerned over-the-counter derivative volume clearing via Singapore Exchange’s clearinghouse could be affected if U.S. authorities did not provide adequate recognition needed under the Dodd-Frank act. Under Dodd-Frank, U.S. regulators would have to recognize the clearinghouse as a suitable counterparty for
a U.S. bank affiliate or branch for clearing purposes. [The U.S. has laid out rules governing the approval of clearinghouses, with both Singapore and Japan signaling they will adapt to comply.
