On December 19, the Fed announced its approval of a rule requiring large banks to publicly disclose certain quantitative liquidity-risk metrics on a quarterly basis. As previously covered in InfoBytes, in September 2014, the federal banking agencies had adopted a rule requiring banks with assets of $50 billion or more to hold “high-quality liquid assets” (HQLA) in an amount equal to or greater than the bank’s net cash outflows during a 30-day stress period; the ratio of HQLA to net cash outflows is the bank’s “liquidity coverage ratio” (LCR). The Fed’s new rule requires large banks to disclose their LCRs, HQLA amounts by category, and certain other metrics, including projected “net stressed cash outflow” amounts and derivatives inflows and outflows. Compliance deadlines range from April 2017 through October 2018.
