The AAII Los Angeles Chapter presents...

"Banking After the Troubled Asset Relief Program"

    Discussed by:

    Dennis Santiago
    Chief Executive Officer, Institutional Risk Analytics

With the end of the Troubled Asset Relief Program, corporate and institutional depositors are beginning to take note of their uninsured exposures. Banks are similarly beginning to move in directions to capture available business without running afoul of tighter and tighter regulatory constraints. Institutional Risk Analytics CEO Dennis Santiago will discuss some of the regulatory changes affecting the viability of an economic recovery. Are we likely to see positive movement? Or are we looking at another year of slipping sideways? What is the meaning of Dodd-Frank, Basel III and stress testing? What does it mean to be a ratings company in this environment?

Markets reflect the vast, complex network of information, expectations and human behavior. These forces drive prices to fair value.
