The Federal Reserve System Key Developments

Federal Reserve Board Issues Final Order that Establishes Enhanced Prudential Standards for General Electric Capital Corporation

The Federal Reserve Board issued a final order that establishes enhanced prudential standards for General Electric Capital Corporation designated by the Financial Stability Oversight Council for supervision by the Board. In light of the plan announced and in the process of execution by General Electric, parent company of GECC, to substantially shrink GECC's systemic footprint and retain only those business lines that support GE's core industrial businesses, the final order provides for application of enhanced prudential standards in two distinct phases. Because of the substantial similarity of GECC's current activities and risk profile to that of a large bank holding company, the enhanced prudential standards that would be applied to GECC are similar to those that apply to large bank holding companies, but are tailored to reflect the unique characteristics of GECC. The standards for both phases include: capital requirements; capital-planning and stress-testing requirements; liquidity requirements; and risk-management and risk-committee requirements. The final order takes into account GE's announced timeline to accomplish this plan, progress made to date toward executing it, and GE's stated intention to seek de-designation by FSOC of GECC by phasing in GECC's compliance with the prudential standards in two stages. Effective from January 1, 2016, GECC must comply with risk-based and leverage capital requirements, the liquidity coverage ratio rule, and related reporting requirements. These standards will help ensure that GECC maintains high-quality regulatory capital and liquidity in amounts commensurate with its risk as it executes its divestiture plan. If GECC is still designated by the FSOC prior to January 1, 2018, GECC would be required to comply with liquidity risk-management, general risk-management, capital-planning, and stress-testing requirements, as well as restrictions on intercompany transactions. Additionally, GECC would also be subject to certain governance requirements unique to its structure.

The Federal Reserve Board Announces Executive Changes

The Federal Reserve Board announced that Brian F. Madigan has been appointed secretary of the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) and deputy director of the Board's Division of Monetary Affairs. As FOMC secretary, Madigan will direct the work of the FOMC Secretariat, which produces minutes and transcripts of FOMC meetings and maintains the Committee's records. He will also advise the Committee on monetary policy. Madigan will report to Thomas Laubach, whom he succeeds as FOMC secretary. Laubach continues as director of the Division of Monetary Affairs and the Committee's primary adviser on monetary policy. Madigan was director of the division and FOMC secretary from 2007 to 2010. Most recently, he was visiting professor of economics and director of the master's degree program in applied economics at Georgetown University.

The Federal Reserve Board, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency Finalize Revisions to the Capital Rules Applicable to Advanced Approaches Banking Organizations

The Federal Reserve Board, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency finalized revisions to the regulatory capital rules adopted in July 2013. The final rule applies only to large, internationally active banking organizations that determine their regulatory capital ratios under the advanced approaches rule generally those with at least $250 billion in total consolidated assets or at least $10 billion in total on-balance sheet foreign exposures. The agencies published changes to the rules affecting these organizations on December 18, 2014, and the final rule adopts these changes substantially as proposed. The final rule corrects and updates certain aspects of the advanced approaches rule, including the calculation requirements for risk-weighted assets for advanced approaches banking organizations. Many of the changes enhance consistency of the advanced approaches with international capital standards. The final rule will be effective October 1, 2015.
