The Volcker Rule & Industrial Companies


The Volcker Rule & Industrial Companies

Unnecessary Harmful Consequences

The Volcker Rule was intended to regulate certain trading and investment activities of banks, bank holding companies and their af liates, such as broker-dealers. It restricts so-called proprietary trading – the purchase and sale of nancial instruments for purposes of short-term pro ts – and sponsoring and investing in hedge funds and private equity funds. The Volcker Rule applies to companies that are not predominantly engaged in nancial activities, but control an industrial loan company or industrial bank (ILC) or thrift. Therefore, they are treated as “banking entities” under the Volcker Rule’s expansive de nition of that term. Consequently, companies that are primarily engaged in industrial and commercial endeavors are now subject to signi cant regulatory burdens and activity limits imposed under the Volcker Rule.

Impact on Industrial Companies

Regulatory Burdens: As a result of the Volcker Rule’s failure to account for the important differences with Wall Street banks, industrial companies that hold a stake in a depository institution are faced with regulatory compliance burdens that were designed only for large nancial institutions. These compliance burdens include establishing company-wide internal controls, periodic independent testing, training programs, record keeping, and written policies and procedures to monitor and limit certain trading and investment activities.

Restricts Business Growth: Industrial companies frequently use nancial products such as interest rate and foreign exchange derivatives and prime money market funds to mitigate the risks of commercial activities and ensure short-term liquidity. These are not speculative activities and do not pose any threat to nancial stability. Indeed, in many cases they are actually permitted under the Volcker Rule. Nonetheless, engaging in these activities even in a tightly constrained manner could require industrial companies to implement extensive Volcker Rule compliance and monitoring programs on a company-wide basis. This is extraordinarily inef cient and does nothing to advance the safety of the U.S. nancial system.

Chills Investment: Including an industrial parent in the de nition of “banking entity” could chill investment in the industrial company. That is because an investor that acquires more than 5% of the parent company could itself be a “banking entity” subject to the Volcker Rule, if other factors related to the investment are deemed to give it “control” for Volcker Rule purposes.

Need for Change

The Volcker Rule, while nominally focused on banks, actually applies
to entire corporate groups. Action is needed for an appropriate balance between sound regulation of nancial institutions and permitting industrial companies to operate without unnecessary restrictions. Left unaltered, the enforcement of the Volcker Rule (as currently written
and interpreted) will have a disastrous effect on the American economy. Financial safety will not be enhanced, but capital investments to regulated entities will diminish over time. This situation strangles opportunities for small businesses, consumers and expansion of the credit pool.

    I have observed that of all types of insurance, medical care insurance is the most controversial because of the discord between the insurance company’s obligation to remain making money and the consumer’s need to have insurance coverage. Insurance companies’ revenue on well being plans are low, thus some providers struggle to gain profits. Thanks for the strategies you talk about through this site.

    I have realized some new points from your web site about computers. Another thing I’ve always presumed is that computer systems have become a product that each home must have for some reasons. They provide convenient ways in which to organize homes, pay bills, shop, study, tune in to music and in some cases watch tv programs. An innovative strategy to complete most of these tasks is by using a notebook computer. These computers are mobile, small, highly effective and easily transportable.

  • July 15, 2018 at 5:50 am

    Thanks for your article. I also feel that laptop computers have become more and more popular these days, and now are sometimes the only form of computer included in a household. This is due to the fact that at the same time they are becoming more and more cost-effective, their processing power keeps growing to the point where these are as robust as pc’s coming from just a few years back.

    Thanks for helping me to acquire new tips about pc’s. I also contain the belief that one of the best ways to keep your laptop in primary condition is a hard plastic-type material case, and also shell, that fits over the top of your computer. Most of these protective gear will be model unique since they are made to fit perfectly within the natural casing. You can buy them directly from the vendor, or through third party sources if they are available for your laptop computer, however not all laptop could have a shell on the market. All over again, thanks for your suggestions.

    I have seen loads of useful things on your site about pcs. However, I’ve got the impression that laptop computers are still less than powerful sufficiently to be a good option if you generally do things that require plenty of power, including video croping and editing. But for website surfing, statement processing, and many other frequent computer functions they are fine, provided you cannot mind the screen size. Many thanks for sharing your ideas.

  • July 15, 2018 at 5:39 pm

    The things i have seen in terms of pc memory is that often there are specific features such as SDRAM, DDR and so forth, that must fit the technical specs of the motherboard. If the computer’s motherboard is very current and there are no computer OS issues, replacing the memory literally requires under an hour. It’s among the list of easiest pc upgrade techniques one can envision. Thanks for giving your ideas.
