Federal Reserve releases public section of resolution plans filed by the first group of largest banking organizations

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on July 3, 2012

Resolution Plans [links to each plan are available at this link] “The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act requires that bank holding companies with total consolidated assets of $50 billion or more and nonbank financial companies designated by the Financial Stability Oversight Council for supervision by the Federal Reserve submit resolution plans annually to the Federal Reserve and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC). Each plan must describe the company’s strategy for rapid and orderly resolution under the Bankruptcy Code in the event of material financial distress or failure of the company. Companies subject to the rule are required to file their initial resolution plans in three groups and on a staggered schedule. Plans for the first group, which includes U.S. bank holding companies with $250 billion or more in total nonbank assets and foreign-based bank holding companies with $250 billion or more in total U.S. nonbank assets, must be submitted on or before July 2, 2012. As required under section 243.8(c) of the Board’s Regulation QQ (12 CFR 243.8(c)), each resolution plan must be divided into a public section and a confidential section. The public sections available on the Board’s website have not been edited or reviewed by the Board and are provided exactly as submitted by the companies.”
