Final Market Risk Capital Rule and SecuritizationDownload
On June 7, 2012, the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System released final rules relating to “Risk Capital Guidelines: Market Risk” to be issued jointly with the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency. The FDIC approved the rule on June 12, 2012 and the OCC will likely approve the rule within the week.
The Final Rule applies to any “market risk bank” - a banking organization that has trading assets and liabilities of at least $1.0 billion or 10% of its total assets.
The effective date of the rule is January 1, 2013.
