Agencies Propose Simplifying Regulatory Capital Rules

September 27, 2017

On Wednesday, September 27, 2017, the federal banking agencies proposed a rule intended to reduce regulatory burden by simplifying several requirements in the agencies' regulatory capital rule.

 

Most aspects of the proposed rule would apply only to banking organizations that are not subject to the "advanced approaches" in the capital rule, which are generally firms with less than $250 billion in total consolidated assets and less than $10 billion in total foreign exposure.

 

Comments on this proposal will be accepted for 60 days after publication in the Federal Register.
