A lot of financial industry participants have been hoping that the Trump administration might ultimately disassemble much of Dodd-Frank. Bits and pieces have been toned down so far, but the regulation remains mostly intact. Well, it seems like it is going to remain that way. SEC chief Jay Clayton just confirmed that while the SEC may seek to modify Dodd-Frank around the edges, there won’t be major changes. “I don’t think Dodd-Frank is changing a great deal, just to put a pin in it”, said Clayton.
FINSUM: Clearinghouses might see some changes, but otherwise Clayton seems fairly adamant that Dodd-Frank is staying put.
