Proposed Volcker Rule Regulations: A Summary

Oct. 18, 2011

The Volcker Rule has far-reaching implications for the financial system. It prohibits any “banking entity” (as defined — broadly) from proprietary trading and from owning, sponsoring or having certain relationships with hedge funds and other private funds, subject to a number of exemptions.

Implementation of the Volcker Rule requires rulemaking, and on October 11 regulators released for comment a notice of proposed rulemaking with implementing regulations. The proposal is extremely detailed and raises complex and difficult issues.

Our Summary of the Proposed Regulations is designed to provide readers with a resource that highlights the major areas of the proposal, while focusing on details that are likely to impact financial institutions and end-users.
