Filing instructions error: Mutual Fund Regulation Release #9

Please note there is an error in the filing instructions for Mutual Fund Regulation Release #9.   This item was recently shipped out.  We have revised the filing instructions  here.

The erroneous instructions say to remove chapters 17 – 19.  Actually, you need to keep chapter 18B.  Do not discard that.  The sections around it were updated but chapter 18B  should remain.

If you have any questions please write us at

Consumer Financial Services Answer Book 2011 (New Title)

The “Consumer Financial Protection Act of 2010” (CFPA), Title X of the Dodd-Frank Act, made major changes in how consumer financial services are regulated, and many of these important changes go into effect on July 21, 2011.  The Consumer Financial Services Answer Book describes in concise detail the regulatory structure and requirements after these revisions take place.  This new publication describes:

  • Updated requirements under such federal statutes as the Truth in Lending Act, the Fair Credit Reporting Act, the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act, and many others
  • The regulatory authority, and the limits on that authority, of the newly created federal Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection, as well as the changed authority of existing financial services regulators
  • The current federal requirements for mortgage loan servicing, foreclosure and eviction
  • The changes, effective this summer, to the federal preemption, which require specific findings before preemption may be invoked
  • The Consumer Financial Services Answer Book helps the practitioner, through an easy question and answer format, understand the revised regulations in such areas as:
  • The secondary loan market, including securitization and assignee liability
  • Mortgage loan servicing
  • Automotive financing
  • Privacy and identity theft

In addition, the Consumer Financial Services Answer Book provides practical insight on litigation practices in this area, including special coverage on e-filing and document retention requirements as well as expert, practical insights into consumer financial class actions and other issues of emerging concern.

Insurance Regulation Answer Book 2011 (New title)

The Insurance Regulation Answer Book provides a general overview of the significant legal and regulatory guidelines that govern the insurance business in the United States. While it is deliberately high level, providing an introduction to a complex and constantly changing area of the law, it regularly offers readers practical guidance designed to assist them to effectively uncover the legal implications of proposed actions so they can help maximize opportunities, minimize liabilities and reduce compliance costs.

The Insurance Regulation Answer Book covers such areas as:

  • The complete definitions of–and distinctions between–the different kinds of insurance
  • The federal regulatory requirements, including recent amendments, on insurance company policies, investments and financial condition
  • The role of reinsurance in spreading financial risk

The Insurance Regulation Answer Book is completely current, seamlessly integrating coverage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, Dodd-Frank and other recent legislative developments of critical importance. It also provides the context and analysis to help navigate an increasingly complex international regulatory landscape.
