Great attention has recently been re-focused on Dodd-Frank and the Volcker Rule in the wake of a recent high-profile trade that resulted in a significant financial loss. As a result, there are new questions about how this development will impact the components included in the final rule. During this webcast program, the faculty will analyze the Volcker Rule’s ability – as proposed – to prohibit proprietary trading and other risky bets at banks; how recent high-profile and risky financial trades will impact the content of the Volcker Rule once finalized;  what activities may be permitted, what will not and how to determine until the final rule is issued; and challenges associated with interagency oversight of Volcker Rule, including the SEC, FRB,  CFTC, FDIC and Office of the Comptroller of Currency.

Practitioners in the accounting and business of law, banking and finance and corporate securities law areas are encouraged to attend this intermediate-level program
