Public Input for the Study Regarding the Implementation of the Prohibitions on Proprietary Trading and Certain Relationships with Hedge Funds and Private Equity Funds

Docket ID: FSOC-2010-0002
Agency: Financial Stability Oversight Council (FSOC)
Parent Agency: Department of the Treasury (TREAS)
The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (the ‘‘Dodd- Frank Act’’) prohibits banking entities from engaging in proprietary trading and from maintaining certain relationships with hedge funds and private equity funds. These prohibitions, commonly known as the “Volcker Rule,” are contained in Section 619 of the Dodd-Frank Act. Section 619 of the Dodd-Frank Act requires the Financial Stability Oversight Council (“FSOC”) to study and make recommendations on implementing the Volcker Rule. To assist the FSOC in conducting the study and formulating its recommendations, the FSOC is issuing this request for information through public comment.
