What Every Trader Needs to Know About Dodd-Frank (in Less Than 40 Pages)

Is your head spinning from all of the new rules and regulations for running a hedge fund? Wondering about the future of the prop trading desk in your asset management firm? Are you "too big to fail"? We've got the answers you've been looking for.

Welcome to the Dodd-Frank Cheat Sheet. Advanced Trading's editors, along with our colleagues across the InformationWeek Financial Services group, have read the entire Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act and winnowed nearly 1,000 pages of legal jargon into a handy, 40-page guide of the most pertinent and pressing provisions and their implications for Wall Street IT departments.

If you run a hedge fund or a prop desk, in particular, you'll need to read Title IV on the regulation of advisers and hedge funds, for starters. Other must-read sections include Title I, which addresses systemic financial stability, and Title II, which defines which firms are truly "too big to fail."

While the Cheat Sheet is by no means a complete guide to the full legislation, it will get you started toward understanding the most sweeping legislative overhaul of the financial services industry since the Great Depression. It's all inside the Dodd-Frank Cheat Sheet.

The Dodd-Frank Cheat Sheet is available to you for free -- just click the button at the bottom of the page. If you haven't already signed up for exclusive digital content from Advanced Trading or from one of our sibling brands in the InformationWeek Business Technology Network, you'll be asked to register. (Membership is free and takes only a few minutes.)
