Why you should attend
The banking industry is in the midst of a fundamental transformation of the regulatory framework in which it operates, as well as a shifting of regulatory and enforcement priorities and approaches. These changes, taking place in an environment of continuing global economic challenges, require bankers and counsel who practice in the financial services industry to reexamine basic assumptions about business operations and future trends. With changing regulations on every subject from capital and liquidity to executive compensation, and new and existing agencies refocusing their enforcement priorities, it is critical that financial industry participants understand the sweeping new rules and enforcement priorities that will shape the future of the industry.
At this year’s Banking Law Institute
, our expert faculty will provide you with a comprehensive overview of the developing regulatory framework as well as the significant operational and compliance issues facing industry participants and regulators, and provide insight into the future direction and challenges of the new legal and regulatory environment.
What you will learn
- Explore key issues and implications of the new rulemakings
- Hear how industry players are changing their operations in response to current and anticipated regulatory developments
- Survey the changing landscape of M&A in the post-reform era
- Understand the scope and focus of likely rulemakings and enforcement priorities of the Consumer Financial
- Protection Bureau (CFPB) and the other agencies
- Examine important changes to capital requirements
Who should attend
This program will provide important insight into the scope and implications of the financial reform legislation and the rules implemented in its wake. Senior executives, legal staff, investment bankers, outside counsel and others involved with domestic and international financial institutions, as well as investors in the financial services industry, will benefit from this program.
Please plan to arrive with enough time to register before the conference begins. A networking breakfast will be available upon your arrival.
