DTCC COO Michael Bodson joined the ranks of the Washington, D.C., blogging community with an April 1 posting on The Hill’s Congress blog. His commentary, “Getting financial reform right,” shared insights from the recent forum on safety and liquidity in the swaps market under Dodd-Frank. (See article, page 10.) Bodson’s foray into social media extended coverage of the forum to a broader audience, allowing DTCC to deliver information directly to policymakers involved in the debate over financial reform.
