On February 18, 2014, the Federal Reserve Board released final rules establishing enhanced prudential standards for bank holding companies with more than $50 billion in total consolidated assets as well as certain other publicly-traded bank holding companies. The rule implements the mandate in Section 165 of the Dodd-Frank Act. The initial rule had been proposed in 2011 and was met with significant comment.

Topics of discussion:

  • Scope of coverage;
  • Risk-based capital, leverage and liquidity requirements;
  • Risk management, risk committee, stress testing and other requirements;
  • How these requirements interact with various other testing and capital requirements;
  • The extent to which certain of these requirements are likely to affect smaller banks; and
  • Competitive issues.
