Financial regulation will remain at the forefront of the policy agenda for the next President, regardless of which party controls the White House and Congress. On the one side, many people are pushing for a further crackdown on the financial sector including large banks, while others connect changes in financial regulation to the slow growth the U.S. economy has experienced in the wake of the financial crisis.
This half-day conference will examine potential post-election changes to the financial regulatory system, including changes to the Dodd-Frank Act and more broadly to the structure and governance of the Federal Reserve.
Morrison & Foerster Partner Jay Baris will participate as a panelist.
Morrison & Foerster Partner Oliver Ireland will speak on a panel entitled “The Fed & Macroeconomic Policies.” This panel will examine the impact of monetary policy on large and small banks. It will also examine the role of the regional Fed banks, their governance and how they are likely to evolve.
The program will be hosted jointly by CFA Institute, Morrison & Foerster and the Center for Financial Policy at the Robert H. Smith School of Business, University of Maryland.
