Federal Reserve Board approves final rule for foreign banks & large U.S. banks

From the FED’s web-site: “The Federal Reserve Board on Tuesday approved a final rule strengthening supervision and regulation of large U.S. bank holding companies and foreign banking organizations.

The final rule establishes a number of enhanced prudential standards for large U.S. bank holding companies and foreign banking organizations to help increase the resiliency of their operations. These standards include liquidity, risk management, and capital. It also requires a foreign banking organization with a significant U.S. presence to establish an intermediate holding company over its U.S. subsidiaries, which will facilitate consistent supervision and regulation of the U.S. operations of the foreign bank. The final rule was required by section 165 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.”
