)-- The Knowledge Group/The Knowledge Congress Live Webcast Series, brings together the world's leading authorities and industry participants through informative two-hour webcasts. It will produce a live webcast entitled Understanding the Orderly Liquidation Authority Provisions of Dodd-Frank Live Webcast. This two-hour event is scheduled on September 27, 2011 @ 3:00pm - 5:00pm ET.
The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act was signed into law in July 21, 2010. Title II of the Reform Act creates a new "orderly liquidation authority" and provides a mechanism for appointing the Federal Insurance Corporation. This will give the FDIC the full authority to seize and break up non-bank financial companies if they are in danger of bankruptcy and would threaten the financial stability of the economy. Furthermore, financial companies at risk are given the chance to avoid imminent failure.
Financial companies, executives, and professions should have a complete understanding of this new law, and its impact on the industry.
In this Knowledge Group Section webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals will help you understand the most critical issues which will include:
- Overview: Why orderly liquidation authority will help companies deal more effectively with bankruptcy
- The impact of orderly liquidation authority to companies
- Restrictions of the law
- Types of companies/entities to which these provisions will apply
- Factors that will determine when the authority will be applied
- Updates on the interim final rule of FDIC
- New powers granted to the FDIC to liquidate financial companies
- Up to the minute regulatory updates
