PwC and Georgetown University's McDonough School of Business convened government decision makers, business executives, leading academics and students at Georgetown University for a two day conference to explore the impact of the new law and the next phase of regulation.

Passage of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act in July 2010 ushered in an era of sweeping change for the financial services industry not seen since the 1930s. The Act significantly reshapes financial regulation in the United States by creating new regulators, regulating new markets, bringing new firms into the regulatory arena and providing regulators with new rulemaking and enforcement powers.

Against this backdrop, PwC and Georgetown University's McDonough School of Business convened government decision makers, business executives, leading academics and students at Georgetown University for a two day conference to explore the impact of the new law and the next phase of regulation in a ground-breaking event, "Financial Reform: What's Next?"

This conference highlights summarizes the dialogue and some of the views expressed.
