Understanding Volcker

Presented by

IFLR, Morrison & Foerster

About this talk

The federal financial regulatory agencies have agreed to publish proposed rules that implement the proprietary trading and private fund sponsorship and investment prohibitions of the Dodd-Frank Act's Volcker Rule. Several of the participating agencies have already published the proposed rules for public comment. The proposed rules can be accessed at http://www.mofo.com/files/Uploads/Images/Volcker%20Rule%20Text.pdf. In addition to applying the basic restrictions of the Volcker Rule to covered banking entities, the proposed rules would create a number of significant regulatory compliance, corporate governance and reporting obligations for affected financial institutions. Please join us for our November 21 session, at which we will review the proposed rules and the consequences for particular trading and fund activities. Topics will include: --Proprietary trading (i) What is proprietary trading?
