- Excerpt from: Federal Reserve Issues Proposed Liquidity Requirements; OCC and FDIC Expected to Follow:

On October 24, the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, in an expected move, issued tough new liquidity requirements generally applicable to banks with assets over $250 billion and somewhat diluted liquidity requirements for banks over $50 billion. Banks with assets of less than $50 billion are exempt from the proposed rule. The liquidity proposal is based on a standard agreed to by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision. The rule would also establish, according to the Federal Reserve, “an enhanced prudential liquidity standard consistent with section 165 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.”
