On May 30th, DePaul University’s Fred Arditti Center for Risk Management and the Chicago Chapter of the Professional Risk Managers’ International Association (PRMIA) invite you to join us for a keynote talk and panel discussion on the evolution and current status of derivatives regulation under Dodd-Frank. University of Pennsylvania Law Professor David Skeel will discuss the evolution of derivative bankruptcy treatment and the systemic risk concerns that gave them (along with “repos”) special status in bankruptcy. He will address proposed remedies in the Dodd-Frank Act and what we may expect in the future given the Act's evolution and implementation to date. Professor Skeel will be followed by a panel of experts: J. Paul Forrester, Partner at Mayer Brown; John Haworth, Markets Professional at the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago; and Thom Thompson, Business Development Consultant at derivatives exchange Eurex, in a panel discussion of the current implementation status of the Dodd-Frank Act’s proscribed treatment of derivatives.
The Arditti Center, in partnership with the Center for Financial Services, is launching the DePaul Finance Forum, a finance blog where we will post a working paper series, a published paper series for discussion, and news analysis dealing with risk management. We will also be able to host pre- and post-event discussions, as well as advertise upcoming Arditti events.
