Federal Reserve proposes new capital rules for Wall Street

April 17 , 2018

The Federal Reserve on Tuesday proposed new rules that could allow some large banks to reduce their capital reserves. The largest Wall Street banks are not likely to get such relief, the Fed said. The new rules would be the first reform of capital standards conceived after the financial crisis.

The Federal Reserve on Tuesday proposed new capital rules that could allow some large banks to reduce their capital reserves.

The proposal may clear the way for some large banks to reduce their capital levels in the future but the largest Wall Street banks are not likely to get such relief, the Fed said.

“Relative to current requirements, the proposed changes would generally maintain or somewhat increase the amount of capital required for GSIBs and generally decrease modestly the amount of capital required for most non-GSIBs,” the Fed said referring to 30 global systemically important banks.

Banks and other stakeholders will have 60 days to comment on the proposal that is likely to take effect next year, said the Federal Reserve.

The new capital standards would be the first reform of capital standards conceived after the decade-old financial crisis.
