Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act

August 4, 2010

Community Bankers of Wisconsin and Godfrey & Kahn partnered together on a one-hour audio seminar regarding the Dodd-Frank Financial Reform Act. The seminar focused on the key provisions of the Act that will immediately and directly impact community banks. Over 150 participants took part in the seminar. (Seminar Presentation / Seminar Audio)

Seminar addressed:

  • How changes in deposit insurance will affect your bank's costs, the deposit products you offer, and the competitive market pressures you may face next year when interest can be paid on business checking accounts;
  • How residential mortgage reform will affect your lending practices and may limit the kinds of loans you can make profitably;
  • How the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau will work and when you have to start worrying about it affecting your bank;
  • About the coming changes in minimum leverage and risk-based capital requirements and how holding companies of community banks dodged a bullet;
  • How your bank might be impacted by new interstate branching powers;
  • How the Fed will now have examination and enforcement authority over non-bank subsidiaries of larger institutions, and how that can affect you;
  • How changes to the securities laws will affect your ability to raise capital; and
  • The basic timetables of the new law that you need to know about.
