You are invited to join Americans for Financial Reform for a discussion of the recently released
Volcker Rule proposal. This centerpiece rule of the Dodd-Frank Act is designed to separate risky
proprietary speculation from core functions of the financial system, and will affect our largest
banks in areas ranging from compensation to investment management. The discussion will
feature outside experts as well as key Congressional architects of the rule.  Speakers will
consider potential benefits of the Volcker Rule for the stability and effectiveness of the financial
system and evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of the proposed rule.
