Event Synopsis:

Foreign banking organizations may have both federally and state-chartered offices in the United States. Hence, The Federal Reserve supervises the U.S. operations of foreign banking organizations with the other federal and state banking agencies.

In June 2014, the Federal Reserve Board requested responses to questions relating to enhanced prudential standards under Section 165 of the Dodd-Frank Act and implementing Regulation YY. Many questions were posed by Foreign Banking Organizations (FBOs) and related to implementation, structure, regulatory reporting, liquidity, risk management, and capital adequacy and stress testing. Among other issues, the questions provide guidance on the scope, detail, and length of an implementation plan an FBO must submit to the Federal Reserve.

The Knowledge Group will host a live webcast: Federal Reserve’s Enhanced Prudential Standards and Implementation Plans with Practical Guidance for Foreign Banking Organizations in 2015. The panel of speakers will help FBO’s and other affected financial institutions better design, implement, and manage their organizational operations and comply with laws in the United States as they relate to the FAQs.

Some of the major topics that will be covered in this course are:

· Enhanced Prudential Standards of the Dodd-Frank Act – An Overview
· Regulation YY
· Compliance and Exceptions
· Discussion on FAQs:
· Implementation Plan
· U.S. Structure: Single U.S. Intermediate Holding Company
· Regulatory Reporting
· Capital Adequacy
· Stress Testing
· Risk Management
· Liquidity
· Up-to-the Minute Regulatory Updates
