Congress has passed, and the President has signed, the "Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008." This US$700 billion landmark financial services rescue legislation, occasioned by the US housing credit crisis and resulting banking crisis, creates a relief program that will allow certain financial institutions to sell "troubled assets" to the US Treasury. In addition, it directs the Treasury to put into place a program to guarantee, for a fee, troubled assets held by financial institutions, and contains other provisions that are important for financial services firms and those who do business with such firms.
Join us for this 45-minute teleconference that will cover issues such as:
- Background of the Treasury program.
- How will it impact you?
- How will the program be implemented
- Who will oversee the program's activities?
- What business opportunities may the program create?
