Treasury Inches Closer to All-to-All Trading

Building on our initial assessment, this report goes in-depth into the Treasury assessment of the market for its obligations and reforms necessary to avert another dash for cash.  Although the Federal Reserve, which participated in this study along with other agencies, indicated in 2020 it will review the supplemental leverage ratio (SLR) to enhance bond-market liquidity, it has yet to do so and no mention is made of any such reform in this report.  To be sure, this is only a Treasury report that does not necessarily reflect the views of these other agencies, but the Fed and Treasury usually work closely on matters such as this and it seems unlikely that the matter would go unmentioned if plans were under way to revise the SLR.  The 2022 report builds on the inter-agency working group’s 2021 analysis (see Client Report TMARKET2) but still does not reach firm conclusions or lay out specific recommendations suitable for near-term action.  However, work is in fact under way at the SEC, which has proposed a new central-clearing mechanism for Treasury obligations that, if finalized, would create at least some of the infrastructure necessary for the all-to-all trading this report now explores in greater detail.  Next steps for Treasury-market reform will be discussed at a conference later this week.

FedFin on: DSIB-Resolution Requirements

2022-10-21T15:51:53-04:00October 21st, 2022|The Vault|

The FRB and FDIC have moved beyond the resolution-planning requirements mandated in the Dodd-Frank Act then implemented over the years to what could be a new resolution regime for banking organizations considered category II or III companies under the inter-agency tailoring rules.  Initially described as guidance when the agencies first announced this initiative, it appears likely that final standards will be more binding, which would almost certainly need to be the case under administrative procedures if the agencies decide not only to revise resolution planning on a sector or bank-by-bank case.  This would be particularly likely if ….

DSIB-Resolution Requirements

The FRB and FDIC have moved beyond the resolution-planning requirements mandated in the Dodd-Frank Act then implemented over the years to what could be a new resolution regime for banking organizations considered category II or III companies under the inter-agency tailoring rules. Initially described as guidance when the agencies first announced this initiative, it appears likely that final standards will be more binding, which would almost certainly need to be the case under administrative procedures if the agencies decide not only to revise resolution planning on a sector or bank-by-bank case. This would be particularly likely if the agencies decide to include them in total loss-absorbency capacity (TLAC) standard for covered banking organizations akin to those now governing GSIBs.
