As fall arrives and football returns, banking headlines seem removed from the daily challenges and operations of community banks.

The industry’s largest institutions await the Financial Stability Oversight Council’s identification of “systemically significant” financial companies and some insight into how these companies would divest themselves of operations in times of market and liquidity stress.

Also coming are proposed regulations for the Volcker rule restricting bank proprietary trading and bank investments in or sponsoring hedge funds and private equity funds. It is no surprise that major technology vendors are reported to be ramping up to offer the larger financial companies even more sophisticated financial risk analysis platforms with models to project loan defaults, liquidity crises or other stress-related events.
