Client Alerts & Publications

    The Second Circuit Court of Appeals recently issued an eagerly awaited decision in Kirschner v. JP Morgan Chase Bank, N.A., which reconfirmed the widely accepted view that loans are not securities under federal or state securities laws.

    On August 23, 2023, the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) voted 3 to 2 to adopt new and amended rules under the Investment Advisers Act of 1940 (the “Advisers Act”) requiring advisers to private funds to provide additional disclosures to investors in such funds, restrict certain types of preferential treatment to investors, and impose new requirements related to fund audits, books and records, and adviser-led secondary transactions.

  • Client Alert

    On July 27, 2023, the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency issued a joint Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (the “NPR”) proposing significant changes to the US bank capital regulations. The NPR proposes several changes to the regulations for determining required capital for bank securitization exposures and additional changes that will impact securitization exposure capital charges. While the proposed changes impact banks originating both traditional and synthetic securitization of their own assets, and securitization exposures in the form of derivatives, and provide a new method for determining the risk weights of exposures to Non-performing Loan (“NPL”) securitizations, this Client Alert focuses on the impact of the proposed rules on banks investing in securitization transactions (other than NPL securitizations), both by buying asset-backed securities with the intent to hold such securities and by providing financing of securitizations by making loans or entering into asset purchase facilities, either directly or through credit and liquidity facilities provided to asset-backed commercial paper (“ABCP”) conduits.
