The Changing Regulatory Landscape
Over the last two years, there has been an incessant flow of new regulatory initiatives, largely as a response to the recent global financial crisis. The coming of the new year will mark the arrival of some key changes and a phase of ongoing origination, consultation and implementation that is set to continue for years ahead.

The SEC is seeking comments to the Release, and therefore the exemptions provided therein are subject to change. All comments to the Release must be submitted no later than January 24, 2011.
