Securities, Commodities And
Banking: 1999 Year In Review from CCH Highlights Developments, Trends
(RIVERWOODS, ILL., January 25, 2000) Passage of the
Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, the most fundamental restructuring of the banking, securities and
insurance industries since the Depression, was the culmination of an eventful year now
captured in Securities, Commodities & Banking: 1999 Year in Review, a
compendium of significant developments and emerging trends in federal securities, blue
sky, commodity futures and federal banking regulation published by CCH INCORPORATED (CCH),
a leading provider of business law information.
Written by the CCH editors who track, analyze and report on financial law developments
as they unfold, Securities, Commodities & Banking: 1999 Year in Review
highlights the legislative, administrative and judicial actions that shaped last year in
the areas of federal and state securities, banking and commodity futures.
Federal securities developments arose in areas as diverse as accounting, international
transactions, Internet and technology, fraud litigation, investment companies and takeover
transactions. Blue sky developments, meanwhile, included state implementation of the
National Securities Markets Improvements Act of 1996; rulemaking, no-action letters and
court decisions; and proposals issued by the North American Securities Administrators
The reauthorization of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, enforcement actions
and OTC derivatives all occupied the attention of those involved in commodity futures last
year. In addition to landmark reform legislation, banking developments included several
issues of capital requirements, loan loss reserves and sub-prime lending. Issues regarding
derivatives and the year 2000 date change had an impact on several different industries
dealing with finance as well.
