Late last year, the Federal Reserve proposed rules that would require foreign banks with sizable U.S. operations to comply with the capital and liquidity standards set out in the Dodd-Frank Act, along with other enhanced prudential standards. The rules would raise the cost of doing business in the U.S. and have generated a great deal of international controversy. Just how large would the impact be?

This Webcast will examine the potential effects on foreign firms, from the need to establish an intermediate holding company, to the capital and liquidity standards and risk management, stress testing and other new requirements. Our speakers will also provide on update on Basel III’s trajectory, as delays in implementation across the globe continue to emphasize the size of the hurdles raised by the reforms.
