FDIC's Hoenig expresses concerns on the capital treatment of derivatives

Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. Vice Chairman Thomas Hoenig expressed a number of concerns regarding the recent guidance on the regulatory capital treatment of certain centrally cleared, settled-to-market derivatives contracts.

Hoenig said the guidance may have "its own negative and unintended consequences." He said that while the guidance effectively lowers the amount of capital required for certain derivatives contracts, the contracts themselves have not matured, thus the potential future exposure and risks of settlement remain. The FDIC vice chair added that there will be an artificial lowering of the capital available to absorb the risks, which essentially shifts the burden to taxpayers.
