Alston & Bird held the fourth teleseminar in its six-part series on the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act on Wednesday, October 27 1:00pm-2:00pm. This series offered a more focused treatment of specific Dodd-Frank reforms and a more practical look at how the reforms may require changes in business operations.
The panelists in the fourth session, Christina LaVera and Joe Yesutis, both of whom are members of Alston & Bird's bank regulatory practice, discussed the impact of Dodd-Frank on bank supervision and examination. In addition to the practical (and political) concerns resulting from multiple federal examiners with overlapping jurisdiction, Dodd-Frank amends several fundamental banking laws (e.g., affiliate transactions, loan-to-one-borrower limitations, etc.) that require immediate operational reforms. Specific topics addressed included.
- the increased supervisory role of the Fed, the FDIC and the OCC;
- functionally regulated subsidiaries;
- anticipating a new examination process and documentation requirements; and
- broader affiliate transaction and insider lending restrictions
