Derivatives - What's In, What's Out After Regulatory Reform: What Every Finance Professional Should Know

Tuesday, November 5, 2013 Professional Development Series

Congress’ reaction to the financial crisis in 2008 was to create an intricate web of new governmental regulations of derivative investments, such as swaps, through legislation such as the complex Dodd-Frank Act.  According to Commodity Futures Trading Commission Chairman Gary Gensler, “swap dealers will be subject to robust oversight,” and “derivatives will be required to trade on open platforms and be submitted for clearing to central counterparties.” What does this new era of regulation mean to the financial industry? Get the inside perspective from an industry expert.
