U.S. Financial Reform

Following the 2008 U.S. financial crisis, congressional policymakers and financial regulators began work to overhaul the U.S. financial regulatory structure, which included a consolidation of regulatory agencies, a new regulation of the financial markets and a goal of increased transparency for most financial transactions, most notably through the new Dodd-Frank law.

As reform efforts continue on both the legislative and regulatory fronts, CRE Finance Council is actively engaged in working with law and policymakers to ensure that financial reforms are customized and coordinated to support, rather than impede, a recovery for the commercial real estate finance industry.
