On June 16, 2015, the Federal Reserve Board, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency issued final revisions to the regulatory capital rules adopted in July 2013. The final rule is applicable to large, international banking organizations that calculate their regulatory capital ratios using the advanced approaches rule (generally, institutions with more than $250 billion in total consolidated assets or more than $10 billion in total on-balance sheet foreign exposures). The final rule substantially adopts the changes to the rule as proposed on December 18, 2014, and corrects and updates certain aspects of the advanced approaches rule, including the calculation requirements for risk-weighted assets for banking organizations using the advanced approaches method. The revisions also enhance the consistency of the advanced approaches rule with international capital standards. The final rule will be effective October 1, 2015.
