Fed extends comment period for new insurance-related capital framework proposal

The Federal Reserve Board has extended the comment period for its proposal to create risk-based capital requirements for depository institution holding companies that are significantly engaged in insurance activities.

Comments are now due Jan. 22, 2020.

The board in late October published a risk-based capital framework, called the Building Block Approach, designed to adjust and aggregate existing legal entity capital requirements to identify enterprise-wide capital requirements, along with a risk-based capital requirement that excludes insurance activities.

The regulator also suggested applying a buffer to limit an insurance depository institution holding company's capital distributions and discretionary bonus payments if it fails to hold enough capital relative to enterprise-wide risk, such as risks from insurance activities.
