Financial services regulation as a creator of opportunities

By Nanda Kumar for Finextra

The United States presidential race is in its home stretch. Trump is confident of victory but his policies for the financial services industry are questionable. In his manifesto he states he wants to rid the US ofthe Dodd-Frank law, which he feels is impeaching on the amount of capital financial institutions can hold. His opponent, and a former First Lady, Clinton, suggests this would be catastrophic and will disadvantage many. Whoever wins, regulation is still likely to shape the way banks conduct themselves.  (more…)

What RegTech and Regulatory Sandboxes Can Learn From Entrepreneurs

By Janos Barberis for LTP

The general perception of regulators is that they are slow and reactive. The Dodd-Frank Act illustrates this. It was passed in 2010, only two years after the Global Financial Crisis (GFC), its full implementation remains a work in progress. And despite the effort, time and resources invested in it, Dodd-Frank represents a less significant shift than the ones effected in the early 1930s and the mid-to-late 1980s. Dodd-Frank is really only a reactive and incremental improvement that has had limited impact on financial markets and their structure. (more…)
