United States Commodity Futures Gives Record $200 Million Payout to Whistleblower, Former Deutsche Bank Employee

29th October 2021 | Hong Kong

The United States Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) has awarded nearly $200 million to a single whistleblower whose specific, credible, and timely original information significantly contributed to an investigation and led to a successful enforcement action by a U.S. federal regulator and a foreign regulator.  Whistleblowers are eligible to receive 10% to 30% of the monetary sanctions collected.  With the award of nearly $200 million, the CFTC has granted whistleblower awards associated with enforcement actions that have resulted in monetary sanctions totalling more than $3 billion.  The announcement by CFTC did not disclose information of the recipient, while Reuters news agency identified the whistleblower (recipient of the $200 million payout) to be a former Deutsche Bank employee.

About the CFTC’s Whistleblower Program

United States
United States

The CFTC’s Whistleblower Program was created under Section 748 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010. Since issuing its first award in 2014, the CFTC has awarded more than $300 million to whistleblowers. The CFTC issues awards related not only to the agency’s enforcement actions, but also in connection with actions brought by other domestic or foreign regulators if certain conditions are met.  The Commodity Exchange Act (CEA) provides confidentiality protections for whistleblowers. Regardless of whether the CFTC grants an award, the CFTC will not disclose any information that could reasonably be expected to reveal a whistleblower’s identity, except in limited circumstances. Consistent with this confidentiality protection, the CFTC will not disclose the name of the enforcement action in which the whistleblower provided information or the exact dollar amount of the award granted.

Whistleblowers are eligible to receive between 10 and 30 percent of the monetary sanctions collected. All whistleblower awards are paid from the CFTC Customer Protection Fund, which was established by Congress, and is financed entirely through monetary sanctions paid to the CFTC by violators of the CEA. No money is taken or withheld from injured customers to fund the program.
