The Board is proposing to raise the asset size threshold for determining applicability of the Board's Small Bank Holding Company Policy Statement (Regulation Y, Appendix C) (Policy Statement) to $1 billion from $500 million and to expand the scope of the Policy Statement to include savings and loan holding companies that also meet the Policy Statement's requirements. The Board is also proposing to make related and conforming revisions to: Regulation Y and Regulation LL, the Board's regulations governing the operations and activities of bank holding companies and savings and loan holding companies, respectively; and Regulation Q, the Board's regulatory capital regulation. Finally, to reduce burden on small non-complex holding companies, the Board is proposing to change the reporting requirements for bank holding companies and savings and loan holding companies that meet the requirements of the Policy Statement (as proposed).
Regulation Q; Regulatory Capital Rules: Interim Final Rule To Exempt Small Savings and Loan Holding Companies From the Regulatory Capital Rules
Document Number: 2015-02038
Type: Rule
Date: 2015-02-03
Agency: Federal Reserve System, Agencies and Commissions
The Board invites comment on an interim final rule that would exempt savings and loan holding companies that have total consolidated assets of less than $500 million and meet certain other requirements from the Board's regulatory capital requirements (Regulation Q). This interim final rule implements a law recently passed by the U.S. Congress, which exempts small savings and loan holding companies from the minimum capital requirements mandated by section 171 of the Dodd- Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act that would meet the Board's Small Bank Holding Company Policy Statement if they were bank holding companies. In connection with this interim final rule, the Board is proposing to remove the requirement that qualifying savings and loan holding companies complete Schedule SC-R, Part I (Regulatory Capital Components and Ratios), of form FR Y-9SP (Parent Company Only Financial Statements for Small Holding Companies).
