Today, the eve of the fifth anniversary of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, the Federal Reserve Board approved a final rule (“Final Rule”) establishing an additional risk-based capital surcharge for the eight US global systemically important banks (“G-SIBs”).

This note includes key highlights of the Final Rule and notable changes from the proposed rule. A more detailed client note will follow.
