CFIUS approval for NSYE/DB
Reuters is reporting that DB's acquisition of the New York Stock Exchange has been approved by the US Committee on Foreign Investments. It didn't even cross my mind that a voluntary CFIUS filing would have been on the radar for this transaction. Though, I suppose control of the capital markets in the US is a question of national security.

CFIUS has reviewed a number of acquisitions of key financial institutions in the past and looked at Borse Dubai/Nasdaq. This isn't a surprise.
