WEBCAST: Financial Reform Legislation: Are You Prepared for What's Coming? Part I
Passage of the landmark Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, the most far-reaching financial regulatory legislation since the Great Depression, has set the stage for major adjustments in the financial services industry. The Act impacts regulation, supervision, and in some cases the structure of financial sector companies. It regulates executive compensation and corporate governance, inside and outside the financial services industry. For affected businesses, the challenges of complying with possibly as many as 400 studies and new regulations in a 2,300-page bill are both numerous and daunting. In this Webcast, Arnold & Porter attorneys examine various aspects of the Act. These range from the Financial Stability Oversight Council/Systemic Risk Determination Process to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau; from fair lending issues to restrictions embodied in the new Volcker Rule. They also include the Act's impact on derivatives, capital, and compensation.
