Securities, Commodities & Banking: 1998 Year In Review Sums Up Last Year, Points To Future Impact

(RIVERWOODS, ILL., January 25, 1999) From the Year 2000 to derivatives to the Plain English Rule, you'll find a year’s worth of financial issues are highlighted in CCH Securities, Commodities & Banking: 1998 Year in Review, a compendium of significant developments and emerging trends in federal securities, blue sky, commodity futures and federal banking regulation by CCH INCORPORATED (CCH), a leading provider of securities and business law information.

Authored by CCH editors who track, analyze and report on financial law developments as they unfold, CCH Securities, Commodities & Banking: 1998 Year in Review pinpoints the legislative, administrative and judicial actions that shaped last year and define ongoing concerns and controversies for those who are involved in almost every aspect of securities and banking.

Federal securities developments arose in areas as diverse as Plain English disclosure requirements, Internet securities offerings, shareholder proposals, litigation reform, and the Year 2000 disclosure obligations of public companies, broker-dealers and investment advisers.

In addition, the states continue to align their securities laws with the National Securities Markets Improvement Act, often relying on model rules being rolled out by the North American Securities Administrators Association. The text of these model rules, and helpful charts of the states that have adopted each one, are a highlight of the book's blue sky coverage.

New instruments and new technology dominated commodities regulation in 1998, according to CCH Securities, Commodities & Banking: 1998 Year in Review. Concept releases on over-the-counter derivatives and electronic trading staked out what are sure to be ongoing controversies in the year ahead. Banking developments also included several issues that will remain lively in 1999, such as financial services reform, which died in the 105th Congress but which will be reintroduced this year and Year 2000 compliance.

CCH Securities, Commodities & Banking: 1998 Year in Review is part of the CCH Business and Finance Group’s new desktop reference series highlighting the year’s emerging trends. Other titles in the series are CCH Advertising Law: Development and Trends and CCH Property & Casualty Insurance: State Legislation.
