Resolution Plans Required for Insured Depository Institutions With $50 Billion or More in Total Assets
Document Number: 2012-1136
Type: Rule
Date: 2012-01-23
Agency: Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, Agencies and Commissions
The FDIC is adopting this final rule (``Rule'') requiring an insured depository institution with $50 billion or more in total assets to submit periodically to the FDIC a contingent plan for the resolution of such institution in the event of its failure (``Resolution Plan''). The Rule establishes the requirements for submission and content of a Resolution Plan, as well as procedures for review by the FDIC. The Rule requires a covered insured depository institution (``CIDI'') to submit a Resolution Plan that should enable the FDIC, as receiver, to resolve the institution under Sections 11 and 13 of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act (``FDI Act''), 12 U.S.C. 1821 and 1823, in a manner that ensures that depositors receive access to their insured deposits within one business day of the institution's failure (two business days if the failure occurs on a day other than Friday), maximizes the net present value return from the sale or disposition of its assets and minimizes the amount of any loss to be realized by the institution's creditors. The Rule is intended to address the continuing exposure of the banking industry to the risks of insolvency of large and complex insured depository institutions, an exposure that can be mitigated with proper resolution planning. The Interim Final Rule, which preceded this Rule, was effective January 1, 2012,\1\ and remains in effect until superseded by this Rule on April 1, 2012.

Prohibitions and Restrictions on Proprietary Trading and Certain Interests in, and Relationships With, Hedge Funds and Private Equity Funds
Document Number: 2011-33623
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2012-01-03
Agency: Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, Agencies and Commissions, Federal Reserve System, Securities and Exchange Commission, Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, Department of Treasury, Department of the Treasury
On November 7, 2011, the OCC, Board, FDIC, and SEC (collectively, the ``Agencies'') published in the Federal Register a joint notice of proposed rulemaking for public comment to implement section 619 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (``Dodd-Frank Act'') which contains certain prohibitions and restrictions on the ability of a banking entity and nonbank financial company supervised by the Board to engage in proprietary trading and have certain interests in, or relationships with, a hedge fund or private equity fund (``proposed rule''). Due to the complexity of the issues involved and to facilitate coordination of the rulemaking among the responsible agencies as provided in section 619 of the Dodd-Frank Act, the Agencies have determined that an extension of the comment period until February 13, 2012 is appropriate. This action will allow interested persons additional time to analyze the proposed rules and prepare their comments.
