Fed Issues Update On Dodd-Frank Framework, Director Responsibility And Annual Stress Tests

Tyler Durden's picture




 

The Fed just released its 'framework' for thinking about planning to implement their proposals to take notice of the Dodd-Frank rules. There is little if any detail in here but the main points, via Bloomberg headlines from the 173 pages of admittedly well structured, but unclarifyingly disappointing prose are as follows:

*FED BOLSTERS TOOLS FOR AVERTING COLLAPSE OF BIG FINANCIAL FIRMS

*FED REGULATIONS FOCUS ON CAPITAL, LIQUIDITY, STRESS TESTS

*FED RULES TARGET RISK MANAGEMENT, REMEDIATION, CREDIT RISK

*FED RULES TO LIMIT FIRMS' CREDIT RISK TO A SINGLE COUNTERPARTY

*FED TO IMPLEMENT RISK-BASED CAPITAL RULES IN TWO PHASES

*FED: FIRMS MUST ANNUALLY HAVE STRESS TESTS, PUBLICIZE RESULTS

*FED TO IMPLEMENT LIQUIDITY RULES IN PHASES

*FED RULE REQUIRES BANK DIRECTORS TO APPROVE LIQUIDITY RISK

*FED: FIRMS MUST ANNUALLY HAVE STRESS TESTS, PUBLICIZE RESULTS

*FED PROPOSES `TRIGGERS' TO `EARLY REMEDIATION' OF WEAKNESSES

Does this mean that we won't see bank CEOs on TV saying they do not have liquidity problems an hour before they go BK?

There is much left unsettled, incuding:

*FED OFFICIALS: INTERNATIONAL LIQUIDITY RULES NOT YET SETTLED

*FED OFFICIALS CONSIDERING WHICH STRESS-TEST RESULTS TO PUBLISH

*FED OFFICIALS WON'T FORECAST WHEN FINAL RULES WILL BE ISSUED

 

The full statement can be read in its entirety here, but we note there are 0 mentions of hypothecation, 453 of credit, 449 of liquidity, and 1 of repo! enjoy...

Sounds juicy. But it won't stop me from passing... judgement. It all ends in the blink of an eye.

We don't want the policy putting any silly ideas into anyone's head, do we?

TOOLS FOR AVERTING COLLAPSE OF BIG FINANCIAL FIRMS include safety pins, lying to the public and buying their toxic assets at par.

Yep, doesn't look like much. But perhaps we have a new noun.

Thou shalt not pull a Corzine.

Unfortunately, there's nothing much here of value. Regulators could have stopped the MF Global collapse long ago; they conciously choose not to. Now regulators will have more power. What use is it when they play favorites and respond so well to bribes? This document doesn't address root issues.

FED REGULATES CDS AND OTHERS FUTURES MARKETS. ALL LIABILITES MUST BE PRESENT ON BALANCE SHEETS.

FED WILL MARK ALL SECURITIES ON BALANCE SHEET TO MARKET AND WILL REQUIRE BANKS TO DO SO

*Unless you are a former alumni of Goldman Sachs, have contributed more than $200,000 to either the Democratic or Republican National Committees in the latest tax year, have at least a dozen direct contacts at several K Street lobbying firms, or merely requesting loan guarantees from the White House...ohhh sorry requesting loan guarantees from the Department of Energy....

Not 100 percent on the particulars here, and most of what expells from Fwank is pure methane, BUT Bank directors having to approve of liquidity risk sounds like a step in the right direction.

I mean someone needs to be held to account right?

*FED RULES TO LIMIT FIRMS' CREDIT RISK TO A SINGLE COUNTERPARTY

 

I admit to being confused on this...I thought the FED's sole purpose was to allow JPM to vacuum up all collateral that isnt tied down by regulations, thereby creating the only counterparty in town.

So this basically means a combination of cramming a bunch of cash into the es, tf, and nq, while at the same time ordering the CME to raise margins on everything that evil speculators buy and then threatening to kidnap, er, jail anyone who doesn't comply.

 Great point ACP - but I would add one small clause to your statement above --> Or simply allowing 'weak' firms to magically become 'Bank Holding Companies' over a weekend & providing for no cost of capital loans via the Federal Reserve Discount Window

I object strongly to any bank directors being held accountable for anything!  Particularly, I am incensensed that the Fed would consider holding us to account for risk management.  There is absolutely no risk involved because the taxpayers are there to bail us out.

How about just enforcing Sarbanes-Oxley already?  You know, the one where Corzine is responsible as the CEO for what happens under him, no excuses, and can't plead ignorance.  The one they passed after ENRON and WORLDCOM. Corzine was the most connected insider CEO on the planet, if he can't be nailed with it then nobody can.

Exactly. What's the point of making new rules when the current ones aren't being enforced?

All the shit from there rolls downhill-- it's the only thing that will keep a true recovery from happening as the insolvent financial system will not be corrected. The fed has further committed their own frail survival on this bad bet.
