Part I of this memorandum focuses on Title IX of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (the “Act”) as it relates to the regulation by the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) of broker-dealers and, to a lesser extent, investment advisers. Part II of this memorandum covers a number of miscellaneous provisions included within Title IX that may affect broker-dealers. Part III describes studies to be conducted by the SEC, the reorganization of the SEC, and a provision that affects current beneficial ownership and short swing profit reporting requirements. Other memoranda prepared by Cadwalader cover the remaining provisions of Title IX, which include (i) significant requirements relevant to credit rating agencies and structured finance products, and (ii) rules related to executive compensation and corporate governance that apply to public companies generally, not merely to those engaged in financial activities
