“Off the Rack”: Federal Reserve Finalizes Tailoring Rules with Few Changes
The Federal Reserve has finalized its rules to further tailor the regulatory framework for enhanced prudential standards and the U.S. Basel III capital and liquidity requirements applicable to domestic banking organizations and foreign banking organizations (Final Tailoring Rules). Compared to the proposed rules that the U.S. banking agencies issued in October 2018 (for domestic firms) and in April 2019 (for foreign firms), the Final Tailoring Rules make very few changes.
We will publish visual memoranda explaining in more detail the Final Tailoring Rules. In the meantime, we set out a few key observations in a client memorandum.
