FIL-65-2019 - PDF (PDF Help)

Statement of Applicability to Institutions with Total Assets Under $10 Billion: The swap margin rule exempts swaps entered into for hedging by financial institutions with total assets of $10 billion or less. Thus, the proposed amendments are not expected to affect such institutions.
