Proposal Under OMB Delegated Authority To Extend for Three Years, With Revision, the Following Information Collection Report title: Complex Institution Monitoring Report. Agency form number: FR 2052a. OMB control number: 7100–0361. Frequency: Monthly, each business day (daily). Respondents: Certain U.S. bank holding companies, U.S. savings and loan holding companies, and foreign banking organizations with U.S. assets. Estimated number of respondents: Monthly, 40; Daily, 12. Estimated average hours per response: Monthly, 120; Daily, 220. Estimated annual burden hours: 717,600.

The FR 2052a is used to monitor the overall liquidity profile of certain institutions supervised by the Board. These data provide detailed information on the liquidity risks within different business lines (e.g., financing of securities positions, prime brokerage activities). In particular, these data serve as part of the Board’s supervisory surveillance program in its liquidity risk management area and provide timely information on firm-specific liquidity risks during periods of stress. Analyses of systemic and idiosyncratic liquidity risk issues are then used to inform the Board’s supervisory processes, including the preparation of analytical reports that detail funding vulnerabilities. Proposed revisions: On September 12, 2018, the Board temporarily approved 3 certain revisions to the FR 2052a relating to the Economic, Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act (EGRRCPA) and Board’s related interim final rule amending the 1 BHCs that are subsidiaries of a foreign banking organization are excluded from the definition of ‘‘U.S. firm.’’ 2 The Board has stated that it will not take action to require bank holding companies or savings and loan holding companies with less than $100 billion in total consolidated assets to comply with certain existing regulatory requirements, including the requirements to report the 2052a. See Statement regarding the impact of the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act (July 6, 2018), available at https:// www.federalreserve.gov/newsevents/pressreleases/ files/bcreg20180706b1.pdf. Subsequently, the Board invited comment on a proposal that would more closely match the regulations for large banking organizations with their risk profiles, which included proposals that would affect the scope of application of the FR 2052a. The press release is available at https://www.federalreserve.gov/ newsevents/pressreleases/bcreg20181031a.htm. 3 See 83 FR 46163 (September 12, 2018). VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:13 Dec 27, 2018 Jkt 247001 LCR Rule.4 As required by section 403 of EGRRCPA, the Board amended the LCR rule within 90 days of the enactment of EGRRCPA to treat investment grade municipal obligations that are liquid and readily-marketable as level 2B HQLA for purposes of their liquidity regulations. Therefore, the Board temporarily revised the asset categories in the FR 2052a to enable institutions to report certain municipal obligations that meet all the requirements for inclusion as HQLA under section 20 of the LCR rule, as amended.5 Specifically, the Board amended the Assets Category Table in Appendix III of the FR 2052a such that the description of the asset classification code ‘‘IG2–Q’’ is sufficiently inclusive of municipal obligations that may qualify as HQLA under the LCR rule. The Board is now proposing to extend for three years these temporary revisions to the FR 2052a. Legal authorization and confidentiality: The FR 2052a report is authorized to be collected from BHCs pursuant to section 5(c) of the Bank Holding Company Act (‘‘BHC Act’’), 12 U.S.C. 1844(c); from FBOs pursuant to section 8(a) of the International Banking Act, 12 U.S.C. 3106(a); from certain BHCs and FBOs pursuant to section 165 of the Dodd-Frank Act, 12 U.S.C. 5365; and from SLHCs pursuant to section 10(b)(2) and (g) of the Home Owners’ Loan Act (‘‘HOLA’’), 12 U.S.C. 1467a(b)(2) and (g). Section 5(c) of the BHC Act authorizes the Board to require BHCs to submit reports to the Board regarding their financial condition, and section 8(a) of the International Banking Act subjects FBOs to the provisions of the BHC Act. Section 165 of the DoddFrank Act requires the Board to establish prudential standards, including liquidity requirements, for certain BHCs and FBOs. Section 10(g) of HOLA authorizes the Board to collect reports from SLHCs. The FR 2052a report is mandatory for covered institutions. The information required to be provided on the FR 2052a is collected as part of the Board’s supervisory process. Accordingly, such information is afforded confidential treatment under exemption 8 of the Freedom of Information Act (‘‘FOIA’’), which protects information from disclosure that is contained in or related to the examination or supervision of a financial institution. 5 U.S.C. 552(b)(8). In addition, the information may also be kept confidential under exemption 4 for the FOIA, which protects trade secrets 4 See 5 See PO 00000 83 FR 44451 (August 31, 2018). 12 CFR part 249.20.

[[Page 67286]]

    General description of report: The FR 2052a is filed by U.S. bank 
holding companies (BHCs) and savings and loan holding companies (SLHCs) 
that are subject to the Liquidity Coverage Ratio rule (LCR rule) as a 
``covered depository institution holding company,'' as defined in 
section 249.3 of the Board's Regulation WW (12 CFR 249.3) 
(collectively, U.S. firms),\1\ with total consolidated assets of $50 
billion or more and foreign banking organizations, as defined by 
section 211.21(o) of the Board's Regulation K and including any U.S. 
bank holding company that is a subsidiary of a foreign banking 
organization (collectively, FBOs), with combined U.S. assets of $50 
billion or more.\2\ Reporting frequency is based on the asset size of 
the firm and whether it has been identified as a firm supervised 
through the Large Institution Supervision Coordinating Committee of the 
Board.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ BHCs that are subsidiaries of a foreign banking organization 
are excluded from the definition of ``U.S. firm.''
    \2\ The Board has stated that it will not take action to require 
bank holding companies or savings and loan holding companies with 
less than $100 billion in total consolidated assets to comply with 
certain existing regulatory requirements, including the requirements 
to report the 2052a. See Statement regarding the impact of the 
Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act 
(July 6, 2018), available at https://www.federalreserve.gov/newsevents/pressreleases/files/bcreg20180706b1.pdf. Subsequently, 
the Board invited comment on a proposal that would more closely 
match the regulations for large banking organizations with their 
risk profiles, which included proposals that would affect the scope 
of application of the FR 2052a. The press release is available at 
https://www.federalreserve.gov/newsevents/pressreleases/bcreg20181031a.htm.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The FR 2052a is used to monitor the overall liquidity profile of 
certain institutions supervised by the Board. These data provide 
detailed information on the liquidity risks within different business 
lines (e.g., financing of securities positions, prime brokerage 
activities). In particular, these data serve as part of the Board's 
supervisory surveillance program in its liquidity risk management area 
and provide timely information on firm-specific liquidity risks during 
periods of stress. Analyses of systemic and idiosyncratic liquidity 
risk issues are then used to inform the Board's supervisory processes, 
including the preparation of analytical reports that detail funding 
vulnerabilities.
    Proposed revisions: On September 12, 2018, the Board temporarily 
approved \3\ certain revisions to the FR 2052a relating to the 
Economic, Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act 
(EGRRCPA) and Board's related interim final rule amending the LCR 
Rule.\4\ As required by section 403 of EGRRCPA, the Board amended the 
LCR rule within 90 days of the enactment of EGRRCPA to treat investment 
grade municipal obligations that are liquid and readily-marketable as 
level 2B HQLA for purposes of their liquidity regulations. Therefore, 
the Board temporarily revised the asset categories in the FR 2052a to 
enable institutions to report certain municipal obligations that meet 
all the requirements for inclusion as HQLA under section 20 of the LCR 
rule, as amended.\5\ Specifically, the Board amended the Assets 
Category Table in Appendix III of the FR 2052a such that the 
description of the asset classification code ``IG2-Q'' is sufficiently 
inclusive of municipal obligations that may qualify as HQLA under the 
LCR rule. The Board is now proposing to extend for three years these 
temporary revisions to the FR 2052a.

    Legal authorization and confidentiality: The FR 2052a report is 
authorized to be collected from BHCs pursuant to section 5(c) of the 
Bank Holding Company Act (``BHC Act''), 12 U.S.C. 1844(c); from FBOs 
pursuant to section 8(a) of the International Banking Act, 12 U.S.C. 
3106(a); from certain BHCs and FBOs pursuant to section 165 of the 
Dodd-Frank Act, 12 U.S.C. 5365; and from SLHCs pursuant to section 
10(b)(2) and (g) of the Home Owners' Loan Act (``HOLA''), 12 U.S.C. 
1467a(b)(2) and (g). Section 5(c) of the BHC Act authorizes the Board 
to require BHCs to submit reports to the Board regarding their 
financial condition, and section 8(a) of the International Banking Act 
subjects FBOs to the provisions of the BHC Act. Section 165 of the 
Dodd-Frank Act requires the Board to establish prudential standards, 
including liquidity requirements, for certain BHCs and FBOs. Section 
10(g) of HOLA authorizes the Board to collect reports from SLHCs. The 
FR 2052a report is mandatory for covered institutions.
    The information required to be provided on the FR 2052a is 
collected as part of the Board's supervisory process. Accordingly, such 
information is afforded confidential treatment under exemption 8 of the 
Freedom of Information Act (``FOIA''), which protects information from 
disclosure that is contained in or related to the examination or 
supervision of a financial institution. 5 U.S.C. 552(b)(8). In 
addition, the information may also be kept confidential under exemption 
4 for the FOIA, which protects trade secrets or confidential commercial 
or financial information. 5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4). In limited circumstances, 
aggregate data for multiple respondents, which does not reveal the 
identity of any individual respondent, may be released.
    Consultation outside the agency: The Board consulted with other 
U.S. regulatory authorities, including the Office of the Comptroller of 
the Currency and Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, in determining 
to propose revisions to the FR 2052a.
