Implications of the Trump Administration for Financial Regulation

The advent of the Trump Administration brings a new era for financial regulation and related legislation, with the potential for major changes in the US and globally. Although it is clear that the main theme will be deregulation, there is a very wide range of potential outcomes.

Drawing on this base, it describes the outcomes that appear highly likely, those that are distinctly possible but not probable, and some outside possibilities.
