Banking & Capital Markets

With the market turmoil experienced by the banking and capital markets sector in 2009, on December 11, 2009 the House passed the Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. The bill's many provisions affect current securities and banking regulation. The sweeping reforms include the Financial Stability Improvement Act, creating a systemic risk regulator; strengthening regulation of depository institutions and bank holding companies; improving the asset-backed securitization process; and providing for an enhanced dissolution authority.

With the industry collapse in 2009, this has also created opportunities for sector. While convergence will certainly continue in 2010, it will also bring new challenges for institutions as they look to integrate systems, processes and risk management practices.
