Volcker Rule, Risk, Regulatory Capital: 2014 Financial Policy Outlook (Video)

From the controversial Volcker Rule to new mortgage standards, several new regulations will test the effectiveness of U.S. oversight of the financial industry in 2014.

An expert panel — including Bob Dannhauser, CFA, head of capital markets policy at CFA Institute — discusses key regulations affecting the financial industry in the coming year. They examine the impact of the Volcker Rule; what’s next for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and likely changes to housing finance; and what’s ahead for Dodd-Frank regulations.

    I want to know who are Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac’s top clients.What is the difference between Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac in terms of lending portfolio.
    It is very important that all banks should disclose their loan book and respective amounts lent out in the annual report.
    Also I think the amount of T-Bill holdings by each bank should be disclosed.
    These are only suggestions.
    If it is possible then some information about Fannie and Freddie can be disclosed.
    Top banking consultants may be appointed to try to recover the
    non performing assets of Fannie and Freddie in a benign manner.
    Or the Fed should inject some liquidity into these banks encouraging to restart their previous business activity as 2014 is not the same as 2008,thereby propping to mortgage backed securities value.When real estate does recover the money injected into these banks will be worth a lot more.
    Also the Bankrupty Reorganization Committee should be setup to do a forensic audit of Lehman Brothers and Bear Sterns to find out the actual cause of their event of Default.
    I was very happy to see General Motors bounce back and its stock started trading again.
    A similar work should be done to revive these stressed banks and even for Enron if possible.

    Standard Disclosure:I don’t have any holdings in the companies
    discussed.I may purchase the stock any time in the future.
