Agency: Federal Reserve System, Agencies and Commissions
The Board is amending the capital plan rule to limit the scope of potential objections to a firm's capital plan on the basis of qualitative deficiencies in the firm's capital planning process (qualitative objection). In particular, effective immediately, the Board will no longer issue a qualitative objection under the capital plan rule to a firm if the firm has been subject to a potential qualitative objection for four consecutive years, and the firm does not receive a qualitative objection in the fourth year of that period. In addition, except for certain firms that have received a qualitative objection in the immediately prior year, the Board will no longer issue a qualitative objection to any firm effective January 1, 2021.
