On March 4, 2016, the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (the “Fed”) issued a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (“NPRM”), inviting comment on reproposed rules (the “Reproposed Rules”) that would establish single counterparty credit limits for U.S. bank holding companies (“BHCs”) and foreign banking organizations (“FBOs”) with at least $50 billion in total consolidated assets. Pursuant to section 165(e) (“section 165(e)”) of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (the “Dodd-Frank Act”), the Fed is required to prescribe rules that limit the amount of credit exposure that U.S. BHCs and FBOs can have to an unaffiliated company to reduce the risks that may arise from such a counterparty’s sudden failure.
