Abstract: This rulemaking is sponsored jointly by the OCC, the FRS, the
FDIC, and the OTS. The rulemaking revises risk-based capital standards
by addressing the regulatory capital treatment of recourse obligations
and direct credit substitutes that expose banks, bank holding
companies, and thrifts to credit risk. The revision treats recourse
obligations and direct credit substitutes more consistently than under
the agencies' current risk-based capital standards. In addition, the
revision allows the agencies to use credit ratings and certain
alternative approaches to match the risk-based capital requirement more
closely to a banking organization's relative risk of loss in asset
securitizations. The rulemaking also requires the sponsor of a
revolving credit securitization that involves an early amortization
feature to hold capital against the amount of assets under management,
i.e., the off balance sheet securitized receivables. The rulemaking is
intended to result in more consistent treatment of recourse obligations
and similar transactions among the agencies, more consistent risk-based
capital treatment for certain types of transactions involving similar
risk, and capital requirements that more closely reflect a banking
organization's relative exposure to credit risk.
