Volcker Rule Rewrite to Remove Trading Burden
Volcker Rule Rewrite to Remove Trading Burden

According to a piece in Bloomberg, U.S. agencies, including the Federal Reserve, will rescind the assumption that positions held less than 60 days are speculative, in turn requiring regulators to challenge compliance with the Volcker Rule. Other changes are rumored to include easing a bank’s ability to stockpile assets it believes customers may be interested in, as well as compliance burdens for smaller lenders. It is widely believed that a regulatory proposal could be released by the end of May.

These regulatory changes are expected to dovetail with the regulatory relief bill that passed the Senate earlier this year, and is expected to pass in the House of Representatives next week. If you wish to participate in our Volcker Task Force, please contact Michael.Williams@sfindustry.org
