Program Description

The Dodd-Frank Act added a new Section 13 to the Bank Holding Company Act.  Commonly known as the “Volcker Rule,” this provision prohibits banking entities and their affiliates from engaging in "proprietary trading" in most securities and derivatives and owning an interest in or sponsoring a private investment fund. The statute charged five federal agencies—the Office of Comptroller of the Currency, Federal Deposit Insurance Corp., the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, the Federal Reserve Board, and the Securities and Exchange Commission— to write regulations to fill in the details. In December 2013, over three years after enactment, the agencies promulgated the final set of regulations that also goes by the name “Volcker Rule.”

Our panel of experts will review the Volcker Rule’s provisions as they apply to U.S. and non-U.S. banks, other depository institutions, and their affiliates.
