New product: Volcker Rule QuickCharts
The new Volcker Rule QuickCharts cover every aspect of the Rule—from Trading and Covered Fund Activities/Investments to Compliance Programs—to help legal practitioners and their corporate clients navigate this complex, evolving environment.
The Final Rule issued in December implementing section 619 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (the “Volcker Rule” or “Rule”) imposes new and potentially severe limitations on domestic and foreign banking entities’ activities in regard to proprietary trading and investments in “covered funds.”
As you counsel clients on the ramifications of the Rule, the Volcker Rule QuickCharts is the one resource that will assist you in staying up-to-date with all of the changes.
