In December, U.S. regulators issued the long-awaited final version of the Volcker Rule, which generally prohibits banking entities from engaging in proprietary trading, and from having ownership interests in, or acting as sponsors to, certain hedge funds and private equity funds. In this Webcast, our experts will address many of the impacts of the final rule on banking institutions, including foreign banks. Aspects of the rule that will be covered include: the exemption for proprietary trading; limitations on permitted trading and fund activities; fund investment and sponsorship; impact on foreign banking organizations; compliance programs; and the conformance period.
