  • Mandatory Compliance Date: Changes to Simplify Volcker rule

    January 1, 2021

    Under the revised rule, firms that do not have significant trading activities will have simplified and streamlined compliance requirements, while firms with significant trading activity will have more stringent compliance requirements.
