In December 2012, the Federal Reserve issued the proposed enhanced prudential standards for foreign banking organizations (FBOs) having total global consolidated assets of US$50 billion or more. The proposal, which will go into effect on July 1, 2015, is expected to bring unprecedented and significant changes to the regulation of FBOs with new requirements to address risk management, stress testing, early remediation, liquidity and debt-to-equity limits among others. With the proposed standards to implement a “rebalanced approach” in regulating non-US banks with U.S. operations, large FBOs will be mandated to establish an intermediate holding company (ICH) that will hold all US bank and nonbank subsidiaries and shall be subject to U.S. capital, liquidity and other enhanced prudential standards on a consolidated basis.
The Knowledge Group is producing “The Federal Reserve's Proposed Enhanced Prudential Standards Explored LIVE Webcast,” to help FBOs, multinational banks and other affected financial institutions learn the significant issues surrounding the proposal and its potential impact on their businesses. They assembled panel of thought leaders will help finance executives understand all the significant issues with respect to this important topic.
This live webcast is a must attend for all finance executives, senior management, corporate lawyers, banking and finance attorneys and other related professionals who need to be in the know with respect to the proposed enhanced prudential standard.
