Four years into the Dodd-Frank Act, what has changed in U.S. financial regulation? On April 11, industry professionals and legal practitioners will share their insights into the most important developments in the field of derivatives and discuss future implications.
The daylong event at The John Marshall Law School – “Dodd-Frank & Derivatives: The Evolving Regulatory Landscape” – will address the roles of derivatives (commonly referred to as futures, options, and swaps) in today’s financial landscape, and delve into complex and evolving regulatory, compliance and legal issues. Experts will discuss the effect of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission’s (CFTC) rulemakings on industry registrants and market participants; current enforcement developments at the CFTC and the exchanges; the changing roles of exchanges, clearinghouses, market participants, and end-users; and key issues in market structure and compliance.
Lunch will be provided to participants and the event will end with a reception for all attendees.
