Regulatory Discussion Panel


The bank regulatory environment has been rapidly evolving under the Biden administration. With a complete turnover of top regulatory appointees, new priorities have been established. In addition to political influences on the regulatory landscape, changes in the economic environment bring new focus on risks embedded in the banking industry. This panel will address the impact of the current regulatory environment on potential changes in the bank merger application/approval process, expectations for regulatory capital in a rising rate environment and the implications for FinTech endeavors and partnerships.
