Regulators propose excluding certain community banks from Volcker rule

Five federal regulatory agencies have made a proposal that would exclude certain community banks from the restrictions of the Volcker rule.

The proposal would remove restrictions on community banks with $10 billion or less in total consolidated assets and total trading assets and liabilities of 5% or less of total consolidated assets from engaging in proprietary trading and from owning or sponsoring hedge funds or private equity funds.

Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, Treasury, the Federal Reserve Board, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp., the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission invited public comment on the proposal.
