Professional Biography

Peter Y. Malyshev is a partner in the Financial Services Group. His practice focuses on regulatory, compliance and transactional matters relating to commodities, derivatives, and securities products regulated by the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) and the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

For over 25 years, Peter has assisted clients in the United States and overseas on numerous transactions involving over-the-counter and exchange-traded derivatives products in almost every asset class and market, such as: banking, financial institutions and insurance; agriculture, energy, mining, and emissions; transportation and infrastructure; interest rates and credit default swaps; foreign exchange, digital assets and fintech, precious metals and securities.

Peter assists various U.S. and non-U.S. derivatives market participants with formulating their risk management and regulatory compliance efforts under the Dodd-Frank Act of 2010, and CFTC’s and SEC’s regulations as well as cross-border application of U.S. regulations. These market participants include entities that require assistance with structuring risk management and hedging transactions, registering with the National Futures Association (NFA) or the CFTC in the appropriate category, or seeking an exemption from such registration. These entities include commodity pool operators (CTOs) and commodity trading advisors (CTAs); futures commission merchants (FCMs); introducing brokers (IBs); swap dealers (SDs) and major swap participants (MSPs); designated contract markets (DCOs); foreign boards of trade (FBOTs) and swap execution facilities (SEFs); non-U.S. intermediaries; commercial end users; and various derivatives or commodity traders. He also advises on compliance under self-regulatory organizations’ (SRO) rules, including the NFA, and U.S. and non-U.S. DCOs and trading facilities.
