Fed Extends Comment Period on Rules for Foreign Banks in U.S.

Feb. 22 (Bloomberg) -- The Federal Reserve Board extended the comment period on a proposed rule that will shape capital, leverage, liquidity and risk-management standards for the largest foreign banks and financial institutions that fall under its supervision.

The Fed Board’s extension, to April 30 from a previous March 31 deadline, focuses on sections 165 and 166 of the Dodd-Frank Act.

“The Board has received a request from the public for an extension of the comment period,” the Fed said in a press release today. “The Board believes that the additional period for comment will facilitate public comment on the provisions.”

Fed officials are putting in place a new rule that will require foreign banking organizations with significant operations in the U.S. to set up holding companies that will be supervised by the U.S. central bank.
