On October 6, 2017, the US Department of Treasury released the second of several anticipated regulatory reform reports to the president titled “A Financial System That Creates Economic Opportunities: Capital Markets.” The report stems from President Trump’s Executive Order 13772 on Core Principles for Regulating the United States Financial System. Generally, the report has been welcomed by securitization markets, and in the words of our partner Jason Kravitt, “This [the report] creates an atmosphere and a tailwind for regulatory reform.” Our partners Carol Hitselberger and Paul Forrester will review the report’s recommendations and describe the process that will likely follow.
