Regulatory Capital Rules: Treatment of Land Development Loans for the Definition of High Volatility Commercial Real Estate Exposure
Document Number: 2019-15332
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-07-23
Agency: Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, Agencies and Commissions, Federal Reserve System, Department of Treasury, Office of the Comptroller of the Currency
The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (collectively, the agencies) are issuing a notice of proposed rulemaking (proposal) to seek comment on the treatment of loans that finance the development of land for purposes of the one- to four-family residential properties exclusion in the definition of high volatility commercial real estate (HVCRE) exposure in the agencies' regulatory capital rule. This proposal expands upon the notice of proposed rulemaking (HVCRE NPR) issued on September 28, 2018, which proposed to revise the definition of HVCRE exposure in the regulatory capital rule to conform to the statutory definition of ``high volatility commercial real estate acquisition, development, or construction (HVCRE ADC) loan,'' in accordance with section 214 of the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act (EGRRCPA).
Regulatory Capital Rule: Simplifications to the Capital Rule Pursuant to the Economic Growth and Regulatory Paperwork Reduction Act of 1996
Document Number: 2019-15131
Type: Rule
Date: 2019-07-22
Agency: Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, Agencies and Commissions, Federal Reserve System, Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, Department of Treasury, Department of the Treasury
The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (collectively, the agencies) are adopting a final rule (final rule) to simplify certain aspects of the capital rule. The final rule is responsive to the agencies' March 2017 report to Congress pursuant to the Economic Growth and Regulatory Paperwork Reduction Act of 1996, in which the agencies committed to meaningfully reduce regulatory burden, especially on community banking organizations. The key elements of the final rule apply solely to banking organizations that are not subject to the advanced approaches capital rule (non- advanced approaches banking organizations). Under the final rule, non- advanced approaches banking organizations will be subject to simpler regulatory capital requirements for mortgage servicing assets, certain deferred tax assets arising from temporary differences, and investments in the capital of unconsolidated financial institutions than those currently applied. The final rule also simplifies, for non-advanced approaches banking organizations, the calculation for the amount of capital issued by a consolidated subsidiary of a banking organization and held by third parties (sometimes referred to as a minority interest) that is includable in regulatory capital. In addition, the final rule makes technical amendments to, and clarifies certain aspects of, the agencies' capital rule for both non-advanced approaches banking organizations and advanced approaches banking organizations (technical amendments). Revisions to the definition of high-volatility commercial real estate exposure in the agencies' capital rule are being addressed in a separate rulemaking.
Revisions to Prohibitions and Restrictions on Proprietary Trading and Certain Interests In, and Relationships With, Hedge Funds and Private Equity Funds
Document Number: 2019-15019
Type: Rule
Date: 2019-07-22
Agency: Commodity Futures Trading Commission, Agencies and Commissions, Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, Federal Reserve System, Securities and Exchange Commission, Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, Department of Treasury, Department of the Treasury
The OCC, Board, FDIC, SEC, and CFTC are adopting final rules to amend the regulations implementing the Bank Holding Company Act's prohibitions and restrictions on proprietary trading and certain interests in, and relationships with, hedge funds and private equity funds (commonly known as the Volcker Rule) in a manner consistent with the statutory amendments made pursuant to certain sections of the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act (EGRRCPA). The EGRRCPA amendments and the final rules exclude from these prohibitions and restrictions certain firms that have total consolidated assets equal to $10 billion or less and total trading assets and liabilities equal to five percent or less of total consolidated assets. The EGRRCPA amendments and the final rules also revise the restrictions applicable to the naming of a hedge fund or private equity fund to permit an investment adviser that is a banking entity to share a name with the fund under certain circumstances.

Type: Rule
Date: 2019-07-03
Agency: Federal Reserve System, Agencies and Commissions
The Board is amending its rules regarding delegation of authority to delegate to Federal Reserve Banks authority to approve certain types of applications, notices, and requests. Under the rule, Federal Reserve Banks are delegated authority to waive a requirement to file certain applications under the Bank Holding Company Act and the Home Owners' Loan Act; grant or deny requests for modifying certain commitments; authorize a state member bank to make a public welfare investment in accordance with section 9 of the Federal Reserve Act under certain circumstances; and approve certain requests, applications, and notices relating to international banking operations filed pursuant to the Board's Regulation K. The rule also modifies the delegation rules by authorizing the Federal Reserve Banks to approve applications and notices concerning mergers and acquisitions that do not exceed the Board's delegation criteria for competition after including deposits of qualifying credit unions weighted at 50 percent and deposits of ``commercially active'' thrift institutions weighted in most cases at 100 percent. In a limited number of cases, deposits of all thrifts would be weighted at 100 percent. To ensure the Board's delegation rules are consistent, the rule also revises or rescinds, as appropriate, certain existing delegations to the Federal Reserve Banks, the Secretary of the Board, and the Director of the Division of Supervision and Regulation.
