The CFTC has announced that it has initiated a Registration Deficiency List (RED List), which identifies unregistered foreign entities that the CFTC believes may be illegally soliciting and/or accepting funds from US residents. The RED List is part of the CFTC’s SmartCheck campaign, an online service that connects investors to tools that allow them to check the registration, license and disciplinary history of certain financial professionals, among other services.

The RED List is available here.
