Section 619 of the Dodd-Frank Act, the so-called “Volcker Rule,” would prohibit banking entities from engaging in proprietary trading of and limit the ownership or sponsorship of hedge funds and other private funds, subject to certain narrow exceptions. The statutory effective date is July 21, 2012, followed by a two-year conformance period. There has been much discussion recently on the potential impact of the Volcker Rule and the timing of the statutory effective date. George Bollenbacher of Kinetix Trading Solutions and Deloitte & Touche’s Kim Olson discussed the regulatory response to the 17,000 Volcker Rule comment letters, the key challenges associated with the Volcker Rule, and how banks are preparing for the rule’s implementation.
