Event Synopsis:

The Dodd-Frank Act contains more than 90 provisions that require the SEC to adopt rules and dozens of other provisions that give the SEC discretionary rulemaking authority. To date, the SEC has proposed or adopted rules affecting, among other things, securities-based swaps, hedge funds, private fund advisers, executive compensation, and credit rating agencies. Because the Dodd-Frank Act affects almost every part of the U.S. financial services industry, compliance officers, corporate counsel, and other industry professionals must become versed in its key provisions.

In this live two-hour web cast, regulators, lawyers, and other professionals will explain key aspects of the Dodd-Frank Act and its rules and will provide practical guidance for complying with those provisions.
