There are quite a number of provisions of the regulatory reforms that are broadly worded so that they may have extraterritorial application.  In addition, there are a number of provisions that are intended to affect foreign institutions doing business in the U.S. 

The panel will discuss the following:

  • The categorization of institutions as “systemically important financial institutions”;
  • Application of the new resolution mechanism to the U.S. operations of a foreign bank;
  • Volcker Rule restrictions;
  • The effect of regulations relating to OTC derivatives;
  • Resolution plans requirements;
  • Regulations affecting regulatory capital, which would affect U.S. intermediate bank holding companies of international banks;
  • Foreign fund exception to the private fund registration rule; and
  • Executive compensation and governance requirements applicable to foreign issuers.

New York and California CLE credit is pending.
