Federal Reserve Proposes Stress Capital Buffer Requirement
2 May 2018
View Debevoise InDepth
On April 10, 2018, the Federal Reserve Board (“FRB”) proposed a “stress capital buffer” requirement that would replace the fixed 2.5% portion of capital conservation buffer and a stress leverage buffer requirement that would apply on top of the 4% minimum tier 1 leverage ratio.
The proposals would be integrated with the FRB’s regulatory capital, capital planning and stress testing regimes, as well as the recently proposed Stress Testing Policy Statement.
These proposed changes reflect one of the last regulatory reform initiatives championed by former FRB Governor Daniel Tarullo before he stepped down in April 2017.
