Abstract:In the aftermath of the financial crisis many new financial regulations have been created and existing regulations have been revised. Many of these regulations are designed to regulate financial market instruments, which are the building blocks of a bank’s portfolio. It’s therefore very likely that these new regulations will have a profound impact on a bank’s portfolio and consequently its operations. Despite these potentially large affects for a bank as a whole, most of the current research focuses on the impact of a specific regulatory change in relation to one singe instrument, while ignoring the total picture. Therefore this research aims to get a better understanding of the total impact of the regulatory changes related to financial market instruments within banks. The objective is to: Identify bank specific opportunities and challenges for eight larger banks within Gallia for the coming years, following from changing regulations regarding financial market instruments, by getting insight in the regulatory changes regarding financial market instruments, identifying bank specific characteristics in the use of financial market instruments and analyzing the consequences of these changes for the portfolios and operations of those banks. This research covers fifteen regulations in total: thirteen European Directives and Regulations, and two U.S. Acts, along with eight pre-selected banks over which these regulations will be analyzed. The fifteen regulations are:  Alternative Investments Fund Managers Directive  Basel III/CDR IV  Dodd–Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act  European Market Infrastructure Regulation  Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act  Guarantee Deposit Schemes  Investment Compensation Schemes  Market Abuse Directive  Markets in Financial Instruments Directive II  Minimum Reserve Requirements  Money Market Funds regulations  Prospective Directive  Short Selling Directive  Transparency Directive  Undertakings for Collective Investment in Transferable Securities V The eight banks that were selected for this research are:  ABN Amro  BNP Paribas  Crédit Agricole  Dexia  ING  KBC  Rabobank  Société Générale
