Why You Should Attend

In addition to the traditional banking regulations that outline capital requirements, define consumer protections, and demand prudence in all transactions, banks must also adhere to myriad securities laws that pertain to bank securities activities—that include everything from proprietary trading and investment activity to underwriting, derivatives, and more.

Although not all securities regulations apply to financial institutions, practitioners need only consult the headlines about banks being prosecuted for violations of securities laws to know that they should be aware of recent developments in U.S. securities regulation.
