The Volcker Rule: Armageddon or a Roaring Mouse? A look at the rule from a community bank perspective (MLC841M)

  Pre Recorded Webinar
  60 minutes

Be Compliant with the Volcker Rule before it takes Effect; look at it from a Community Bank Perspective.

The Volcker Rule ushered in tradition prohibitions is sought by Congress following the financial crisis. The rule is codified in section 619 of the Dodd Frank Act which was passed in July 2010 and regulators issued their final rule implementing the section in December, 2013. The Volcker Rule was meant to prevent financial institutions from threatening depositors’ funds or the financial system by taking excessive trading risks or investing in private equity funds.  Ironically, the final rule permits the instruments that precipitated the crisis (mortgage backed securities and credit default swaps).  It also exacerbates the liquidity risk posed by private equity investments.   The rule takes effect in July of 2015.  While some of the rule applies only to large banks, other sections apply to all financial institutions

In this webinar, expert speaker Tally Ferguson CFA will summarize regulatory requirements, and provide references for more detailed assessment. His focus will, however, be on how to build a Volcker Rule compliance plan for financial institutions with less than $10 billion in assets. Then, he would proceed to explain how that plan would have to change as your financial institution grows. It has taken regulators almost four years to write down the regulations and financial institutions have less than half of that time to comply with it. Attend this webinar and gain effective compliance by learning:

  1. A framework for breaking down the 978 page rule into manageable parts
  2. A template for building a compliance plan for under $10 billion financial institutions
  3. A list of “triggers” that could inadvertently cross the line between Volcker Compliance and non-compliance
  4. Helpful references for more detailed guidance

P.S: This material is subject to change.  Congress is considering several bills that exempt smaller banks from some Volcker rule requirements.
