Fed Final Market Risk Capital Rule

On June 7, pursuant to Section 939A of the Dodd-Frank Act, the Fed released a final rule revising its market risk capital requirements to incorporate certain changes the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision made to its international capital standards for market risk between 2005 and 2010. The final rule is to be issued jointly with the FDIC and OCC, which are expected to adopt the rule next week. The final rule will be effective on January 1, 2013. Fed Memo. Fed Final Rule.
