Event Synopsis:

The controversial Volcker Rule which limits banks’ trading activity with their own funds remains a topic of high interest for finance companies. The complexities and potential impact of the rule triggered federal agencies to extend comment period in January. With the rule to take effect later in the year, finance companies need to overhaul their investment model now to avoid potential catastrophic penalties.

A panel of key experts and thought leaders is being assembled by The Knowledge Group to provide companies with comprehensive information regarding this significant topic. In a two-hour live webcast, their experts will examine the substantive provisions of this rule as well as its impact in the financial industry. In addition to regulatory updates, speakers will also provide practical guidance on how to comply right now. A live interaction with the speakers is also included in this event.
