Governor Brainard Discusses Systemic Risk, TBTF and Basel III

In a speech on Thursday at the “Dodd-Frank at Five: Looking Back and Looking Forward” event in Washington, D.C., Federal Reserve Governor Lael Brainard discussed a variety of topics including systemic risk, too-big-to-fail, Basel III and the proposed capital surcharge.

“For the systemic banking institutions, it will be important to assess incorporating the risk-based capital surcharge in some form into the CCAR (Comprehensive Capital Analysis and Review) post-stress minimum in order to ensure these institutions remain sufficiently resilient to reduce the expected losses to the system through periods of financial and economic stress,” Brainard said.
