Proprietary Trading & Investment Restrictions Under the Volcker Role Paperback / softback
Edited by Bradley S. Duncan, Alicia M. Brenshaw
On 21 July 2010, President Obama signed into law the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.
The Dodd-Frank Act is intended to strengthen the financial system and constrain risk taking at banking entities.
Section 619 of the Dodd-Frank Act, also known as the Volcker Rule, is a key component of this effort.
The Volcker Rule prohibits banking entities, which benefit from federal insurance on customer deposits or access to the discount window, from engaging in proprietary trading and from investing in or sponsoring hedge funds and private equity funds, subject to certain exceptions.
This book examines the proprietary trading and investment restrictions under the Volcker Rule.
