Effective Date: Final Margin Rule

The final rule amends the CFTC Margin Rule to permit the application of a minimum transfer amount (MTA) of up to $50,000 for each separately managed account (SMA) of a legal entity that is a counterparty to an SD or MSP in an uncleared swap transaction and to permit the application of separate MTAs for initial margin and variation margin.
