  • July 2014 Compliance for Volcker Rule - 20 April 2012
  • Named for former United States Federal Reserve Chairman Paul Volcker, the Volcker Rule forms part of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, designed to prevent banks in the US from making speculative investments that would not be in the best interests of their customers. The Dodd-Frank Act stipulated a 2014 compliance deadline, but some of the law's fine print relating to the Volcker Rule appeared open to interpretation, prompting bank officials to request clarification from financial regulators. The clarification came yesterday in the form of an announcement that Wall Street need not comply immediately with the Volcker Rule banning banks from trading with their own money.

  • JOBS Act - Easing Regulations for Growth - 5 April 2012
  • Having passed the United States House of Representatives with bipartisan support on March 8 this year, the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act – more commonly, and maybe aptly, referred to as the JOBS Act – is awaiting the signature of Barack Obama to pass it into law. The purpose of the Act is to ease various securities regulations, and thereby encourage the funding of small businesses in the United States. The President has already made known his readiness to sign the JOBS Act once it has been passed by both chambers, and analysts are reportedly studying the new legislation with a view to making use of any opportunities it may present to Wall Street investors.
