Volcker Rule Final Regulations: Funds Flowcharts
Client Memorandum

Created date


Davis Polk has prepared a set of flowcharts analyzing the prohibition on banking entities sponsoring or acquiring ownership interests in hedge funds and private equity funds under the final regulations implementing the Volcker Rule, issued by the Federal Reserve, FDIC, OCC, SEC and CFTC on December 10, 2013.

To make the summary and analysis of the final rules more user-friendly, these flowcharts graphically map the key restrictions on covered funds in lieu of a traditional law firm memo.

In addition to the funds flowcharts, Davis Polk flowcharts identifying permissible and impermissible proprietary trading activities under the Volcker Rule are available at www.volckerrule.com.
