On January 24, the Federal Reserve Board issued SR 14-1, which attached new guidance for certain large banks titled Principles and Practices for Recovery and Resolution Preparedness. The document outlines additional expectations for the recovery and resolution preparedness of eight large domestic bank holding companies. The guidance stresses the importance of robust systems to manage collateral, information, and payments, clearing, and settlement activities. It also highlights the importance of adequate liquidity and funding arrangements during times of stress, and robust arrangements for the provision of shared or outsourced services necessary for critical operations. The Federal Reserve will incorporate the guidance into its ongoing recovery and resolution preparedness assessments of large bank holding companies subject to the guidance.
