Watch video of Edward DeMarco, Acting Director of the Federal Housing Finance Agency, speaking on “Maintaining Housing Finance in a World of Uncertainty.”
The passage of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act is considered the most sweeping change to financial regulation since the Great Depression. It was created and signed into law in 2010 as a result of the recent recession, with the goal of bringing more accountability to Wall Street and big banks.
On May 5-6, experts and leaders from the financial and banking industries came to Vanderbilt University to discuss the challenges and regulatory changes surrounding implementing this massive financial regulation.
The conference was led by the Financial Markets Research Center at the Vanderbilt Owen Graduate School of Management in Owen’s Averbuch Auditorium. The keynote speaker was Edward DeMarco, Acting Director of the Federal Housing Finance Agency. His talk was titled, “Maintaining Housing Finance in a World of Uncertainty.”
