US Federal Reserve Board and US Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation Seek Comment on 2019 Resolution Plan Guidance
06/29/2018The U.S. Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System and U.S. Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation published revised resolution plan (or "living wills") guidance for the eight largest and most complex U.S. banking institutions. The proposed guidance would be applicable to resolution plans submitted beginning in 2019. The proposed guidance is largely based upon, and consistent with, prior guidance issued by the Federal Reserve Board and FDIC in 2016 - through the publication of Guidance for 2017 §165(d) Annual Resolution Plan Submissions by Domestic Covered Companies that Submitted Resolution Plans in July 2015 - and has been informed by, and updated as a result of, Federal Reserve Board and FDIC review of recent resolution plan submissions by these institutions. Consistent with prior guidance published by the Federal Reserve Board and FDIC, the proposed guidance is organized into six substantive areas: (1) Capital; (2) Liquidity; (3) Governance Mechanisms; (4) Operational; (5) Legal Entity Rationalization and Separability; and (6) Derivatives and Trading Activities. The proposed guidance includes updates to the Derivatives and Trading Activities and Operational: Payment, Clearing, and Settlement Activities Sections, and makes other clarifying changes. The changes and updates are intended, in part, to help streamline submissions by these institutions and to provide additional clarity with respect to the process. Comments to the proposed guidance will be due 60 days from its publication in the Federal Register.
