Why You Should Attend
With the new administration and an evolving regulatory focus in 2017, the Volcker Rule was often cited as a target for change, if not repeal. Meanwhile, banks and financial institutions continued their Volcker Rule compliance duties throughout the year and 2017 even witnessed the Rule’s first enforcement action. Discussion of Rule changes reemerged in 2017 with 2018 touted as a potential window where any adjustments would be made. Until any changes are final, the industry carries on with its compliance efforts.
Our Volcker Rule program began four years ago as a primer on section 619 of the Dodd-Frank Act and how financial institutions were responding to the final rule. In the four years since, the program has evolved to include more practical lesson points and an even broader range of legal perspectives to draw from, making this program a leader of its kind on the topic.
