Generally accepted accounting standards would be used to measure liabilities for firms that are not subject to consolidated risk-based capital rules. Institutions that are required to comply with the rule include depository institutions and companies that control insured depository institutions, bank holding companies, savings and loan holding companies, foreign banking organizations, and non-bank entities the Financial Stability Oversight Council for Board Supervision should designate.Based on comments made in the last few months, the Fed made minor changes to the rule, which was originally proposed in May. The company cannot acquire control of another company under merchant banking authority of the company has exceeded the 10 percent limit. There is an exemption in the final rule, however, that allows a financial company to continue securitization if it has gone over the 10 percent limit. in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Brian Honea’s writing and editing career spans nearly two decades across many forms of media.
