Will the Senate Alter Dodd-Frank and CFPB Regulations?

December 3rd, 2012 Comments off

American Banker reports the Senate Banking Committee, two years after implementing Dodd-Frank, will likely review the impact of the regulations on the marketplace to determine what may need to be altered. The agenda has not been set yet for the coming year because Committee Chairman Tim Johnson (D-S.D.) wants to consult with the new committee members before releasing a detailed agenda. Now that elections are over, Democrats may be more willing to accept that changes need to be made, and Republican rhetoric has backed away from total repeal of Dodd-Frank to making it more productive. Jaret Seiberg at Guggenheim Securities says, “The real focus is going to be the shift from looking at why banks did bad things to how you can get more credit flowing to the economy. That shift in focus is going to open the door for making modifications to Dodd-Frank.” Passage of any legislation, whether it’s changing the Volcker rule that bans proprietary trading, or the structure of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), will depend on the committee members relationship and that of the entire Senate. As MHProNews has learned, Amy Friend of Promontory Group, and former chief counsel to the Senate Banking Committee, says lawmakers likely want to see how the CFPB’s qualified mortgage rule, due in January, and the interagency risk retention plan affect the market. “Those will be extremely important in terms of trying to provide some certainty to the private sector,” she says.

Dodd-Frank not Likely to Vanish

September 11th, 2012 Comments off

BloombergBusinessWeek says while Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has vowed to repeal Dodd-Frank, it’s more likely he would water down some of the restrictions on the most lucrative and profitable investments while providing sufficient oversight to protect the banks. Specifically, banks would toss restrictions on investments in private equity and hedge funds, reduce the reach of the Consumer Federal Protection Bureau (CFPB), and block the Volcker Rule. MHProNews has learned Matthew Albrecht, an analyst with Standard & Poor’s, says the eight biggest U.S. banks could lose between $22 billion and $34 billion due to Dodd-Frank. Mark Calabria, a former Republican Senate aide, says, “From a bank’s perspective, you’d rather have piecemeal reform of Dodd-Frank, not only because there are things in the law you want to keep, but also because you’re going to have more control over the process.” Bank executives are aware of the public’s anger in its role in causing the recession and publicly may favor Dodd-Frank while their lawyers fight behind the front line to weaken the rules.

FSOC Regulators Losing Sight of Purpose

July 25th, 2012 Comments off

MHProNews has learned at a hearing on the Financial Services Oversight Council (FSOC), the “super committee” of regulators established as part of the Dodd-Frank Act to provide comprehensive monitoring of our nation’s financial system, House Financial Services Committee Chairman Spencer Bachus (R-AL) said there is little evidence the FSOC has accomplished what it was created to do because their regulators are so busy writing hundreds of new rules required by Dodd-Frank. Noting the failure of FSOC to protect customers of MF Global and Peregrine Financial Group, Rep. Bachus said, “It seems regulators are so busy trying to write rules against things like proprietary trading – which even Chairman Volcker agrees was not a cause of the financial crisis – that they are failing to fulfill their primary mission. Are they so busy writing tickets for jay walking that they’re letting the robbers and thieves run loose? Rather than pass massive new laws that require hundreds of new regulations, it’s a better use of limited resources to make sure regulators are enforcing the rules we already have.”
