Job Information

Background:

On June 14, the Federal Reserve Board (Fed) released its long-awaited final rule to establish single-counterparty credit limits (SCCL), following almost seven years of proposals and re-proposals. SCCL are intended to reduce systemic risk by limiting a bank’s credit exposure to any single counterparty as a percentage of that bank’s capital, but the most recent 2016 re-proposal presented numerous operational issues for implementing these limits. In the final rule, the Fed addressed a large number of industry concerns and comments, particularly with respect to certain key definitions, operational issues, and compliance requirements.
