In commenting on the financial crisis, policymakers have speculated that involvement by regulated institutions in speculative, "non-banking" activities exposed these institutions to greater risk and that these risks endangered the overall stability of the financial system.  Some even urged a return to the days of Glass-Steagall type separation of activities.  Volcker proposed prohibitions on the activities of insured depository institutions and their affiliates.  Through the legislative process, elements of the Volcker Rule have been incorporated into the final regulatory reform measures.  Speakers will discuss changes to Section 23A of the Federal Reserve Act affecting transactions between affiliated entities.

The panelists will also discuss:

  • Activities restrictions and the types of entities to which these prohibitions will apply
  • The ban on proprietary trading and exemptions to this ban
  • The prohibition on investments in, and sponsoring of, certain private funds
  • Application to foreign banks
  • Limitations on transactions with affiliated entities
  • Concentration limits
  • Required rulemaking and phase-in periods 


  • Oliver Ireland, Morrison & Foerster LLP
  • Anna Pinedo, Morrison & Foerster LLP

PLI will provide CLE credit.
