Fitch publishes US Basel III and Dodd Frank Regulatory Guide

RELATED TOPICS​

Fitch Ratings has introduced a new report – 'US Basel III and Dodd Frank Act Regulatory Guide’ – a quick guide for investors and market participants to navigate the changing regulations facing the US banking industry and assess their impact. 

The report focuses on the applicability of the new regulations, the general purpose of the regulations, and differences between the US and Basel standards. The report further aims to provide transparency to the regulatory impacts on banking organisations by asset size.

 
As noted in Fitch's recently published outlook reports for US banks, regulatory issues will remain prominent for the industry in 2015 given recently proposed rules and additional ones anticipated, both by US and global regulatory bodies. Fitch believes elevated legal and regulatory costs will pressure US bank earnings in 2015, but be manageable from a credit perspective.
 
The report provides summaries for each of the main regulatory provisions of Basel III and Dodd-Frank including treatment of capital, liquidity standards, stress testing, and related topics.
