As previously noted, we are prioritizing issues for post-election analysis where we see agreement on broad objectives between conservative Republicans and progressive Democrats.  Following our forecasts for resolution policy (see Client Report RESOLVE42) and capital regulation (see Client Report CAPITAL214), we turn here to enforcement.  This is of course an area that poses not only costly legal and reputational risk, but also drives activities and practices (see market realignment following “de-risking” as a case in point).  Despite many press suggestions that a Trump Administration will back away from stringent financial enforcement, we expect tough actions not only to come, but also during the transition.
