CFTC releases a Request for Information on climate-related financial risk

In June, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) released a Request for Information (RFI) on climate-related financial risk, and they have recently extended the deadline for comment until October 7. Regulators signal that climate-related issues will remain near the top of their agendas, so we wanted to ensure that our clients and the market were apprised of the RFI and could submit comments.
