SIFMA held its Dodd-Frank Impact Analysis Summit in New York City on July 13, bringing together almost 500 industry participants for a day-long discussion just prior to the first anniversary of the Act’s passage. In addition to Tim Ryan (SIFMA CEO), the summit included guest speakers Larry Kudlow, Evan Thomas and Mary Miller (Treasury Assistant Security) along with several panel discussions. SIFMA has been actively working with many of the 22 federal agencies that are implementing the Act through discussions and filing more than 100 comment letters.
I was there and brought back some of the panelists comments and my opinions of what lies ahead. Read my blog post Heading down the (Dodd-Frank) highway.
