New York, NY, March 16, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- GoldenNetworking.com's Banking Leaders Forum 2010, "Discerning the New Industry Landscape (If Possible)", (http://www.bankingleadersforum.com), March 25th, Washington DC, sponsored by DLA Piper and Promontory Financial Group, will provide the most comprehensive overview of the changes in the legislative and regulatory landscape for the financial services industry, including Senator Dodd's recent proposal to overhaul current financial market rules.
Reported The Wall Street Journal, "The biggest winner in the bill appears to be the Federal Reserve, which would see its powers expand considerably. Large financial companies, particularly big banks, could emerge as the biggest losers. They would face much higher scrutiny from bank supervisors and potentially face sanctions for violating consumer protection rules by an autonomous new division within the Fed. Big banks could also be forced to comply with certain state consumer protection rules, a move that would be considered a huge win for consumer advocates and a blow to a financial industry that had lobbied against such a move. A central plank in the bill would give the government the power to seize and dismantle a large, failing financial company. This provision is intended to prevent the government from having to launch another ad hoc taxpayer-funded bailout, like the one that bailed out American International Group Inc. in late 2008. To pay for this power, the government is expected to require the largest financial companies to pay a combined $50 billion into a fund that one day could be used to arrest a failing company."
