            How Did We Get Here? Consequences of Federal Reserve Policy and the End of Bank Proprietary Trading

            It’s no secret that Federal Reserve policy has severely distorted financial markets. Worse yet, the reading of tea leaves by investors about when and by how much the Fed will raise interest rates, end its asset purchases, and potentially unwind its portfolio has created volatility spurred by seemingly innocuous pieces of information. In addition, while the arsenal is full to combat inflation (if the US is fortunate enough to experience the phenomenon ever again), there is the equivalent of a pop-gun to battle the much greater threat of deflation. In such a scenario, investors are on their own - and few are positioned for it.

            From Sandy Weill and Paul Volcker to Chris Dodd and Barney Frank, powerful forces have plotted and executed on a plan to end bank proprietary trading. Although their motivations differed, following the 2008 financial crisis the cumulative weight of their efforts resulted in a change to the structure of the fixed income capital markets so dramatic as to have set in motion a number of significant – but little understood - unintended consequences. As is often the case with legislative and regulatory influence in the financial markets, some of these consequences have confounded the very objectives of the protagonists for change.

            One notable result for alternative investment managers and investors is the opportunity to exploit market dislocations previously enjoyed almost exclusively by bank proprietary trading groups. While opportunities exist, identifying and managing the risks are not trivial.

            Doug Dachille is CEO and Chief Investment Officer of First Principles Capital Management, LLC. Prior to co-founding First Principles, Doug was the Global Head of Proprietary Trading for JP Morgan.
