Jeff Mantel, PhD Founder and CEO, The Mantel Group
who will deliver a presentation on:
The Implications of Dodd-Frank and its Impact to the Resource and Financial Sectors 
Dr. Mantel will touch on the Section 1504 requirements which are clear, so his talk will not spend too much time on them. What Jeff will do is spend more time on what Title VII means to the resource sector. Here is a list of topics he will cover:
  1) A brief history of the Dodd-Frank Act
  2) Transparency requirements of Section 1504 of Dodd-Frank      a) Payments to governments               i) Impetus for this rule      b) Reporting safety violations      c) Prevention of the use of “conflict minerals”
  3) Dodd-Frank derivatives clearing and reporting requirements      a) OTC derivatives trades to be cleared where possible      b) Both cleared and uncleared derivatives trades must be reported to CFTC (via SDR’s)      c) Reporting exemptions for non-financial end users               i) Who can claim an exemption               ii) What is needed to make such a claim      d) LEIs, UPIs, and USI’s and their uses by regulators for derivatives reporting               i) CFTC Commissioner Scott O’Malia’s recent public comments      e) CFTC position limits      f) Limits on positions taken by SDs and MSPs for trades with non-financial end users and possible consequences for the resource industry
Biography: Dr. Mantel has over 30 years of experience in the financial markets. This includes 5 years as an actuary, 10 years as global head of commodity derivatives trading for large international banks, and 8 years in senior product management roles in the trading and risk management software industry, and 10 years in financial consulting. Jeff’s trading experience includes precious metals, base metals, grains, FX, and fixed income. His software experience includes design of front office trading systems for FX and commodities, enterprise market and credit risk management systems, an electronic exchange for trading DRAM chips, and a surveillance/alerting platform used for power trading. Jeff has spoken at numerous international risk management conferences and has published articles in Latin Finance Magazine, Electric Light & Power Magazine, and the Proceedings of the American Mathematical Society. He holds a BA in mathematics from Washington University in St. Louis and an MA and PhD in mathematics from Northwestern University.
