Financial regulatory reform legislation requires Federal banking agencies to establish minimum leverage and risk-based capital requirements. The legislation will effect a number of important changes for insured depository institutions and bank holding companies. Financial institutions also are evaluating the impact of the proposed Basel III framework on regulatory capital requirements. These changes will affect funding costs for financial institutions going forward. Banks should begin planning now and will be required to consider a number of alternatives.

Topics Will Include:

  • Changes effected by legislation, including minimum leverage capital and risk-based capital requirements;
  • The Basel III process;
  • A review of hybrid securities (tax characteristics, legal form, ratings treatment);
  • Effect of Dodd-Frank and Basel III on certain instruments, like trust preferred securities and other innovative hybrids;
  • Contingent capital;
  • Effect of these developments on ratings for financial institutions;
  • Addressing outstanding hybrid securities;
  • Tax considerations; and
  • Consent solicitations, remarketings and exchange offers and other liability management options.
