Dodd-Frank Act

The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 (Dodd-Frank Act) was enacted to restructure the financial regulatory system to restore public confidence following the 2008 financial crisis and prevent another crisis from occurring.

• Financial and bank holding companies (bank holding company).
• Private equity and hedge funds.
• swaps and derivatives.
• securitizations.
