U.S. Legislative Priorities

In 2010, the U.S. Congress and the President prioritized their commitment to financial regulatory reform with the passage and signing of the Dodd-Frank Act, the most comprehensive overhaul of the regulation of financial markets and participants since the 1930s.

Tax Policy

U.S. Financial & Capital Markets Regulation
