CCH Focus On Banking Newsletter Offers Heads-up On
Laws, Regulations Affecting Banking, Financial Institutions
Helps Industry Leaders Keep Up with Full Spectrum, from Securities,
to Consumer Credit, IRAs
(Riverwoods, ILL., November 12, 1998) -- A banker needs more than the local
newspaper to keep up with the flood of legal developments in the financial industry today,
according to CCH INCORPORATED, a leading provider of business and regulatory law
and information. To help leaders in banking and finance keep up with the legal issues
posed by regulation and technology, as well as the
never-ending stream of congressional and agency activity, CCH has introduced CCH Focus
on Banking, a biweekly newsletter providing succinct updates and timely commentary.
"Developments in the law affecting banks and other financial institutions come
quickly, and from all directions," said Serena Lynn Froats, editor, CCH Focus
on Banking. "With CCHs long-standing strengths in reporting on the law of
banking, securities, regulated industries and taxation, this is a particularly critical
time to bring together our news reporting and explanatory skills to provide an overview
for busy professionals in the industry."
CCH has been reporting on tax and business law since 1913, the year that the modern
income tax was enacted and the Federal Reserve System was created.
Examples of timely articles include analyses from Contributing Editor James Hamilton,
JD, LLM, legal analyst with the CCH Federal Securities Law Reporter. Hamilton
offers an up-close look at such areas as the regulation of financial derivatives, the
banking implications of hedge fund involvement and the potential of banking reform
Another feature alerts banking executives to the issues
that an IRS examiner is almost certain to raise in any examination of a bank, and provides
additional information on where the controlling IRS document can be retrieved.
The opportunities and loopholes for owners of IRA accounts, based on recent legislation
-- and how banks can discuss these issues with customers -- are the focus of an ongoing
column, "Todays IRAs," by Beth Steele, JD, editor of the CCH Individual
Retirement Plans Guide.
"Agency Actions," a regular feature of Focus on Banking, alerts
readers to activities of federal agencies such as the Office of the Comptroller of the
Currency, the Federal Reserve Board, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation and the
Securities and Exchange Commission.
"Focal Points" presents highlights of banking-related news stories and
announcements of workshops and seminars.
