Treasury's second financial regulation report

Last week, the Treasury Department released its second report on financial regulation in response to President Trump’s February Executive Order. The Report’s recommendations closely aligned to industry concerns while largely leaving statutory requirements of the Dodd-Frank Act untouched. As a result, a majority of its recommendations can be directly enacted by the relevant regulatory agencies and in fact a number of the recommended actions are already in progress or have been endorsed by agency leaders.

  1. More IPOs, better markets.
  2. Pull back on securitization requirements.
  3. Ease margins for uncleared swaps.
  4. Maintain the CFTC's swap dealer de minimis threshold.
  5. Increase oversight for financial market utilities.
