Regulators identify eight financial firms as 'systemically significant'

The entities designated are the Clearing House Payments Co., CLS Bank International, Chicago Mercantile Exchange, Inc., the Depository Trust Company, Fixed Income Clearing Corp., ICE Clear Credit LLC, National Securities Clearing Corp., and the Options Clearing Corp.

The entities all received notification that regulators planned to designate them in May, and had the right to request a hearing if they disagreed with the plan. None did, according to the Treasury Department.

At its latest meeting, the FSOC also signed off on its second annual report to Congress, detailing its work over the last year.
