- Excerpt from US Financial Stability Oversight Council Releases Guidance Regarding Calculations of Stage 1 Threshold:

On June 8, 2015, US Financial Stability Oversight Council staff released guidance providing additional information regarding the calculation of Stage 1 thresholds, used by the FSOC to help identify nonbank financial companies for potential supervision by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System and to determine application of enhanced prudential standards to such companies. To assist its determination, the FSOC created a three-stage process, where it applies in Stage 1 six quantitative thresholds to a broad group of nonbank financial companies to assess whether any may be subject to further evaluation in Stage 2. The recent FSOC guidance describes the components of each of the thresholds, applicable accounting standards that are applied, data sources that are utilized, entities included in the calculations, the frequency of calculations and periodic review of the Stage 1 thresholds.
