See more in Financial Regulation; Financial Markets; Global Over the past two decades, another form of economic exchange besides imports and exports has risen to a level of vastly greater significance and political concern: the purchase and sale of financial assets across borders.

Professor Carol Alexander - Market Risk Analysis: News 2010 Professor Carol Alexander - Market Risk Analysis: News 2010 News from 2010 This has been a much better year than last – which I guess (at least, I hope) was my annus horribilis – can’t imagine a worse time than spring/summer of 2009! After the effort of 5 years writingMarket Risk Analysis, I’ve been focussing my academic work on research. It was a great pleasure to have an academic visitor, Professor José María Sarabia, a renowned Statistician from the University of Cantabria, doing some interesting joint work on generalized beta generated distributions and their applications. We became firm friends and I look forward to continuing our research. No less than six of my PhD students graduated this year.

Isaac & Robert H Smith for American Banker Everyone has an interest in policies that will foster a strong economy and sustainable job growth.

Note on this post: In the last while we have been provided with plenty of fodder for reflections on the virtual society. A virtual girlfriend that is (surprise) not real; a new product to help connect the dots across our indelible social network footprints; another product gathering steam that allows us to create footprints that, like those of real humans, wash away.

FDIC Isaac Remarks at Roundtable on Brokered Deposits Posted: Mar 18, 2011 During my tenure as Chairman of the FDIC, the practice of money brokers bundling vast sums of money from investors and placing those funds in high-risk banks and S&Ls paying the highest interest rates cost the FDIC and taxpayers tens of billions of dollars in losses. The FDIC had a similar experience with brokered funds during the most recent crisis. It was my honor to participate in an FDIC Roundtable on this subject on March 18, 2011. The agenda of that Roundtable is below followed by my opening remarks. FDIC Isaac Remarks at Roundtable on Brokered Deposits | William Isaac

Bert Ely has specialized in deposit insurance and banking structure issues since 1981. As the S&L situation worsened, he became in 1986 one of the first persons to publicly predict a taxpayer bailout of the FSLIC. In 1991, he was the first person to correctly predict the non-crisis in commercial banking; in 1992, he predicted the forthcoming taxpayer bailout of the Japanese banking system. In recent years Bert has been sounding the alarm about the financial risks posed to taxpayers by the two government-sponsored enterprises Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. He has co-authored two monographs on Fannie and Freddie issues that were published by the American Enterprise Institute, and has testified before Congress about the Fannie/Freddie problem.

Kevin on the Street This post also published at TabbFORUM.com Regulations will have a significant impact on how SEF aggregators function and how widely these aggregators will be adopted by various market participants. Some of the most contentious rule proposals are those that will have the greatest impact on liquidity fragmentation. They include the 15-second rule, the ability to voice trade, the “block trade” definition, best execution requirements, and the requirement to send an RFQ to five dealers. The Smart Automated Agency Broker (SAAB), think swaps smart order router on steroids, will not only help traders execute the right product at the right price, but it will also mitigate regulatory complexities.
