The U.S. Department of the Treasury issued its second report (of four reports), titled “A Financial System that Creates Economic Opportunities, Capital Markets.”  The Report was issued in response to Presidential Order 137772 setting forth the Core Principles that should guide regulation of the U.S. financial system. The Report addresses various elements of the capital markets, from the equity and debt markets, to the U.S. Treasury securities market, and to derivatives and securitization.  The recommendations relating to the U.S. IPO market and reducing the regulatory burdens for companies seeking to undertake an IPO as well as for smaller public companies may be very familiar to readers of this blog, since many of the measures are included in the Financial CHOICE Act or otherwise addressed in proposed legislation or in rule proposals from the SEC.
