Janet Yellen on Corporations

 

 


Investigate retail trading; ensure investors are protected

Yellen told "Good Morning America" it was critical to ensure "that our financial markets are functioning properly, efficiently and that investors are protected." Yellen convened the heads of the SEC, CFTC, the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Reserve Bank of New York to discuss retail trading and "whether or not the recent events warrant further action," she told ABC. "We need to understand deeply what happened before we go to action, but certainly we're looking carefully at these events."

Worried about insufficient oversight of investment firms

Yellen, whose financial disclosures show that she earned a total of $7 million in fees over the past two years, voiced worry about insufficient oversight of large firms that serve as hubs of lending or investment. She says regulators should particularly consider reining in hedge funds and other firms that have escaped heightened scrutiny since the 2008 credit crisis, including in the landmark Dodd-Frank law, which largely focused on big banks.

Risks of hedge funds' debt very real and serious

Hedge funds are among the big financial institutions that Yellen has dealt with in her remarks. In remarks at the Brookings event, she said financial market stress showed that the risks posed by hedge funds' debt-fueled investments "were very real and serious," though she did not directly characterize them as responsible for the market seize up.
