On June 10, 2016, the Federal Reserve Board and Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation announced they are permitting 84 foreign banking organizations (not identified) with limited U.S. operations to file “reduced content” resolution plans for their next three resolution plans. As reported, the decision is intended “to increase clarity and reduce burden by creating more certainty around future filing requirements.” All of the 84 firms have less than $50 billion in total U.S. assets. The agencies said “the reduced content plans should focus on changes the firms have made to their prior resolution plans, actions taken to improve the effectiveness of, or that may alter, those plans, and, where applicable, actions to ensure any subsidiary insured depository institution is adequately protected from the risks arising from the activities of nonbank subsidiaries of the firm. The first of these reduced content plans must be submitted to the agencies by December 31, 2016. To file reduced content plans for the next three years, the firms must maintain less than $50 billion in U.S. assets and not experience any material events.
