SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Board’s GSIB surcharge rule establishes a methodology to identify global systemically important bank holding companies in the United States (GSIBs) based on indicators that are correlated with systemic importance.1 Under the GSIB surcharge rule, a firm must calculate its GSIB score using a specific formula (Method 1). Method 1 uses five equally-weighted categories that are correlated with systemic importance— size, interconnectedness, crossjurisdictional activity, substitutability, and complexity—and subdivided into twelve systemic indicators. For each indicator, a firm divides its own measure of each systemic indicator by an aggregate global indicator amount.

The BCBS amounts are determined based on the sum of the systemic indicator scores of the 75 largest U.S. and foreign banking organizations as measured by the BCBS, and any other banking organization that the BCBS includes in its sample total for that year. The BCBS publicly releases these values in euros each year. To account for changes in currency values, the GSIB surcharge rule indicates that the Board will publish the aggregate global indicator amounts each year in U.S. dollars.3 The aggregate global indicator amounts for purposes of the Method 1 score calculation under the GSIB surcharge rule for 2015, which were calculated as part of the end-2014 GSIB assessment, are: AGGREGATE GLOBAL INDICATOR AMOUNTS IN U.S. DOLLARS (USD) FOR 2015 Aggregate global indicator amount in USD (end-2014 assessment) Category Systemic indicator Size ...................................................

Regulation Q; Regulatory Capital Rules: Risk-Based Capital 
Surcharges for Global Systemically Important Bank Holding Companies

AGENCY: Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System.

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (Board) 
is providing this notice pursuant to the Board's rule regarding risk-
based capital surcharges for global systemically important bank holding 
companies (GSIB surcharge rule). The GSIB surcharge rule provides that 
the Board will publish each year the aggregate global indicator amounts 
for purposes of a calculation required under the rule. Accordingly, and 
pursuant to the GSIB surcharge rule, the Board is hereby publishing the 
aggregate global indicator amounts for 2015.

DATES: Effective: January 14, 2016.

Director, (202) 530-6260, Constance M. Horsley, Assistant Director,

Banking Supervision and Regulation; or Benjamin McDonough, Special 
Counsel, (202) 452-2036, or Mark Buresh, Senior Attorney, (202) 452-

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Board's GSIB surcharge rule establishes 
a methodology to identify global systemically important bank holding 
companies in the United States (GSIBs) based on indicators that are 
correlated with systemic importance.\1\ Under the GSIB surcharge rule, 
a firm must calculate its GSIB score using a specific formula (Method 
1). Method 1 uses five equally-weighted categories that are correlated 
with systemic importance--size, interconnectedness, cross-
jurisdictional activity, substitutability, and complexity--and 
subdivided into twelve systemic indicators. For each indicator, a firm 
divides its own measure of each systemic indicator by an aggregate 
global indicator amount.

[[Page 1949]]

The firm's Method 1 score is the sum of its weighted systemic indicator 
scores. The GSIB surcharge for the firm is then the higher of the GSIB 
surcharge determined under Method 1 and a second method that weights 
size, interconnectedness, cross-jurisdictional activity, complexity, 
and reliance on wholesale funding (instead of substitutability).\2\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ See 12 CFR 217.402, 217.404.
    \2\ The second method (Method 2) uses similar inputs to those 
used in Method 1, but replaces the substitutability category with a 
measure of a firm's use of short-term wholesale funding. In 
addition, Method 2 is calibrated differently from Method 1.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The aggregate global indicator amounts used in the score 
calculation under Method 1 are based on data collected by the Basel 
Committee on Banking Supervision (BCBS). The BCBS amounts are 
determined based on the sum of the systemic indicator scores of the 75 
largest U.S. and foreign banking organizations as measured by the BCBS, 
and any other banking organization that the BCBS includes in its sample 
total for that year. The BCBS publicly releases these values in euros 
each year. To account for changes in currency values, the GSIB 
surcharge rule indicates that the Board will publish the aggregate 
global indicator amounts each year in U.S. dollars.\3\

score calculation under the GSIB surcharge rule for 2015, which were
