Market Policy & Government Affairs

Strategic, Proactive Leadership

Cboe and its subsidiaries operate in a highly regulated environment. Laws passed by Congress and rules established by federal agencies, such as the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), greatly affect the market structure within which Cboe operates as well as numerous other areas of importance to Cboe and the investors Cboe serves. As a leader in the equities and derivatives marketplace, and an innovator in options and volatility products, Cboe is committed to proactively addressing key issues of interest and providing transparency into our strategic agenda.
