    GALLERY: New BB&T Leadership Institute campus provides a top facility to match program

    With Wednesday morning's opening of a new $35 million facility, BB&T Leadership Institute has an all-inclusive, one-stop home for its immersive training programs, somehow tucked into a wooden oasis on the outskirts of Piedmont Triad International Airport at 7807 Airport Center Dr. in Greensboro. Perched in a canopy of trees with buildings connected by pedestrian bridges and overlooking a pond, the three-level campus with decks on every level pretty much has it all – 48 luxury guest rooms, eight classrooms, meeting and special event rooms, a fitness room, staff offices and a bistro. As if any reminder is needed, the large BB&T logo near the top of the nearby BB&T Triad Corporate Center, which the bank took over from American Express in 2013, is on display for guests gazing through the buildings' glass walls.

    3 ETFs Set to Gain from Dodd-Frank Rollbacks

    Since it was signed into federal law by former President Barrack Obama in July 2010, the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Dodd-Frank) has attracted much debate about its effectiveness and its impact on small- to mid-sized banks. Under Dodd-Frank, banks with a market capitalization over $50 billion had to undergo stress tests, which measured their ability to weather a financial downturn. The threshold for such testing has raised to $250 billion, which effectively removes regional banks from having to meet this requirement.

    Why 5 banks in Greater Philadelphia will benefit from change in 'too big to fail' designation

    Five banks with significant operations in the Philadelphia region will see their regulatory oversight lessened due to a new law that will roll back parts of the Dodd-Frank law enacted in the wake of the financial crisis. The bill, signed into law by President Donald Trump Thursday after approvals from the Republican-led Senate and House, would increase the threshold for so-called “too big to fail” banks from the current $50 billion in assets to $250 billion. BB&T (NYSE: BBT), Santander (NYSE: SAN), Key (NYSE: KEY) and M&T (NYSE: MTB) — five of the 14 largest banks operating in Greater Philadelphia— would no longer be subject to all of the stress tests and other regulatory obligations that come with being “too big to fail.” There are currently 30 U.S. banks with between $50 billion and $250 billion in total assets.
