Dodd-Frank Living Will Proposed Regulation

April 7, 2011

by: Jerry Blanchard

Section 165(d) of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act requires each nonbank financial company supervised by the Federal Reserve and each bank holding company having assets of $50 billion or more (a “Covered Company”) to develop what has commonly become referred to as a “living will,” essentially a plan of orderly liquidation (the “Resolution Plan”). The Federal Reserve and the FDIC published a proposed rule on March 29, 2011, to implement this provision. The proposed rule requires a Covered Company to provide its initial plan within 180 days from the effective date of the final rule or the date the entity becomes a Covered Company. Each Covered Company will then be required to submit an updated plan within 90 days of the end of each calendar year. Interim updates are required if an event occurs that might have a material impact on the Resolution Plan.

How do the Bank Regulators View the Federal Home Loan Banks?

March 28, 2011

by: Bryan Cave

Jerry Blanchard recently spoke to the national sales meeting of the Federal Home Loan Banks on the topic of How the Regulators View the FHLB’s.

The FHLB system has been a major source of liquidity to its over 8,000 members during the financial crisis and faces many challenges as the system deals with:

  • shrinking demand for loan advances;
  • losses incurred in mortgage backed securities that have led to a number of the FHLB’s having to enter into Consent Orders with  their primary regulator; and
  • greater Congressional scrutiny of all government sponsored entities.

Banking regulators deal with the consequences of FHLB policies and actions when financial institutions are taken into receivership. In some instances, the availability of FHLB advances may have led to some banks to incurring more risk than they would  have otherwise  incurred.

Jerry’s presentation addressed how the banking regulators view the role of

Blanchard in Atlanta Business Chronicle

Atlanta Partner Jerry Blanchard was quoted Nov. 4 in the Atlanta Business Chronicle in connection with a resurgence of energy from Georgia banks. The state has suffered numerous bank failures, and even those that did not go under have in large part been hibernating during the recession. But now they are starting to look for capital again, he said. “To the extent that everybody has been looking for light at the end of the tunnel, this is a little light,” Blanchard said.
