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 Association.

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.
