What Boards Can Expect From the Trump Administration

Episode Summary

In terms of economic growth and SEC regulation, what does a Trump presidency have in store for boards and management? Troy Paredes, a former SEC commissioner (who served from 2008 to 2013), joins us to share his predictions.

Drawing on his background with the Securities & Exchange Commission, Paredes forecasts potential amendments to regulations under the newly nominated (but yet-to-be-confirmed) SEC Chair Jay Clayton. While Paredes is optimistic that we’re going to see pro-growth policies and regulatory rollbacks, he also shares his predictions for Dodd-Frank, the DOL Fiduciary Rule, the Financial Stability Oversight Council, and capital formation in general—all discussed through the lens of a corporate board member. In this episode, we cover:

  • What general predictions does Paredes have regarding the SEC commission under a Trump administration?
  • What are his predictions for Dodd-Frank amendments and other reform legislation?
  • How will these changes affect corporate board members—particularly in their oversight role?
  • What issues should boards have on their docket in 2017?
