The recent US midterm elections will have a substantial impact on the worldwide financial markets. Changes in congressional committee leadership and the dynamics of a Republican Party-controlled Congress will have far-reaching impacts on the global banking and finance industry as a whole.
Please join Mayer Brown presenters David McIntosh, a partner in our Government Affairs group and former US Republican Congressman, and Toby Moffett, a senior adviser to the firm and former US Democratic Congressman, for a postmortem on the what the midterm election results mean for the worldwide financial markets.
Topics to be discussed include:
- The prospective financial services-specific legislative agenda and financial issues to watch for in the 114th Congress.
- Changes in the House and Senate leadership and membership of committees relevant to the financial services industry.
- The global and financial economic impact of a Republican-controlled Congress and a Democratic President, including a look at which controversial issues might lead to rare bipartisan cooperation in congressional investigations.
