The Financial Stability Oversight Council (FSOC) has recently designated Prudential Financial, Inc. as a nonbank financial company that should be subject to consolidated supervision and enhanced prudential standards under Title I of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (also referred to as a systemically important financial institution or “SIFI”). Prudential has 30 days to challenge the designation.

The designation does not constitute a determination that the company is currently experiencing material financial distress. In July 2013, FSOC designated American International Group, Inc. and General Electric Capital Corporation, Inc. as SIFIs.
