FIA, ISDA, ABA, SIFMA and BPI call on Fed to review capital rules

18 March 2019


FIA today joined The International Swaps and Derivatives Association, Inc. (ISDA), the Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association (SIFMA), the American Bankers Association (ABA), and the Bank Policy Institute (BPI) in submitting comments regarding the proposed rule issued by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency to implement the standardized approach for counterparty credit risk (SA-CCR) as a replacement for the current exposure method (CEM) in the US capital rules.

Separately, FIA filed a comment letter responding to the SA-CCR proposal representing the views of its commodities members. The letter supplements the issues raised in the joint trade association letter and highlights the numerous benefits that financial institutions subject to the capital rules provide for commodities markets and the harms the proposed modifications to SA-CCR will have on commercial end-users.
