Financial reform can bring major changes to financial regulation, which is why it’s essential for any senior executive to understand how his or her business can potentially be affected. The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, for example, brings the most significant changes to financial regulation in the US since the reform that followed the Great Depression. If they mean to react appropriately, then business leaders need to understand what those changes are.

On Wednesday, November 13, ACG’s National Capital chapter will hold a very special panel discussion and reception with two local Members of Congress, Congressman John Delaney (D-MD) and Congressman Robert Hurt (R-VA).

Both men serve on the crucial House Financial Services Committee, and this is an outstanding opportunity for business leaders to meet and discuss policy with two rising stars in Congress, with a focus on financial services legislation. Topics will include Dodd-Frank implementation, tax reform and the ongoing budget dispute. Specific items that will be discussed by the panel include:

  • Legislation sponsored by Congressman Hurt that would exempt private equity funds from registering with the SEC;
  • Banking regulations;
  • Changes to the tax treatment of carried interest;
  • Legislation to regulate small merger and acquisition (M&A) brokers; and
  • Changes to the SBIC program.

The panel discussion will be followed by a lengthy Q&A session and reception.
