Dodd-Frank has had a profound effect on virtually all aspects of the derivatives marketplace requiring most derivative contracts to be traded on a public exchange and to be processed, or cleared, through a third party to guarantee payment if one of the parties to a trade went out of business. Simply stated, banks, issuers, hedge funds who trade commodities, investment management banks, broker-dealers, and mutual funds are under scrutiny like never before. ACI’s timely forum on Swaps and Derivatives Global Markets Regulation will help you lower your systemic risk.

Of Counsel Julian Hammar will be speaking on a panel titled “Impact of the Volcker Rule: Implementation, Prohibitions and Restrictions on Proprietary Trading.” This session will discuss:

  • What are the issues surrounding the implementation of Volcker?
  • Prohibitions and restrictions on proprietary trading;
  • Does the definition of proprietary trading adequately distinguish permissible market making, underwriting, and hedging activities?
  • Are “solely outside of the United States” trading and fund activities overly limited by the need to avoid any US nexus? and
  • What new issues have been raised?
