Agencies Finalize Technical Correction of Capital Rules

The Federal Reserve Board, FDIC and OCC announced the finalization of a technical correction of the definition of "eligible guarantee" in the agencies' risk-based capital rules.

In April, the agencies proposed a rule to correct the definition of eligible guarantee by clarifying the types of guarantees that can be recognized for purposes of calculating a banking organization's regulatory capital. Banking organizations utilize eligible guarantees to reduce their credit risk to certain exposures. The correction impacts banking organizations that determine their regulatory capital ratios under the advanced approaches framework, which applies to large internationally active banking organizations--generally those with at least $250 billion in total consolidated assets or at least $10 billion in total on-balance sheet foreign exposures.

The final rule is substantially similar to the proposed rule and adopts the definition of eligible guarantee without change.

The final rule is effective October 1, 2014.

Read the final rule.
