Political Contributions: Special Considerations for Financial Institutions During Election Season

In the wake of political corruption scandals preceding and during the financial crisis, US federal, state and local government regulators have imposed myriad restrictions on the ability of financial service providers and their key employees and affiliates to participate in the US election process through campaign contributions. These restrictions apply to investment advisers, municipal dealers, broker-dealers, swap dealers and other financial institutions that transact business with state and local governments and US pension systems.

Join Mayer Brown Government lawyers John Janicik, Joe Seliga and Mitch Holzrichter, as they highlight new rules adopted by the SEC, MSRB and CFTC and recent enforcement actions, as well as laws and policies adopted by state and local pension systems, such as those in California and New York. They will suggest best practices for ensuring compliance in this evolving area during the current election season.
