Kroll Bond Rating Agency (KBRA) announces the release of this months edition of Bank Talk: The After-Show, by Ethan Heisler, founder and editor-in-chief of The Bank Treasury Newsletter and Senior Director for KBRA.
This months edition is titled The Fed and its Small Break for Big Banks. Van invites Ethan to go through the Feds latest proposal to implement capital and liquidity requirements for large banks to conform with the Crapo banking bill. Van notes the negligible capital and liquidity release for large banks if the proposal is implemented. Ethan explains that even so, the proposal fits in with the current Feds objective to improve bank regulation by increasing efficiency and simplicity. Ethan and Van close by discussing the remarkable public dissension by Fed Governor Brainard against the proposed rulemaking in the context of a Fed board of Governors with four seats unfilled.
