In this report, we expand on prior forecasts to assess broad financial-regulatory and structure issues under the SEC’s jurisdiction under what seems likely:  a Chairman Gensler.  His will be an activist SEC, one sure to throw broker-dealers, asset managers, and investment funds from the relative comfort of the last four years.  Mr. Gensler is uniquely focused on investment funds after writing a book on the topic and will surely accelerate Commission work on the MMF-reform options outlined in the new PWG report (see Client Report MMF16) and on renewed consideration of asset-management interconnectivity with the banking system (see Client Report FSOC16).
