The Federal Reserve Board recently proposed for public comment amendments to its risk-based capital rule that would impose a risk-based capital surcharge on eight US global systemically important banks (“G-SIBs”). The Federal Reserve Board estimates that all eight of the G-SIBs currently would meet the fully phased in G-SIB surcharge. The proposed surcharge would not apply to US bank holding companies controlled by foreign banking organizations, although the Federal Reserve Board requested comment on that aspect of the Proposal. If adopted as proposed, it would become fully effective on January 1, 2019.
