Mark Chorazak , Attorney,
Simpson Thacher & Bartlett LLP

  • • The FDIC’s new deposit insurance pricing system incorporates Dodd-Frank’s revision to the assessment base and reflects Congress’s intent that larger institutions, as well as those that are structurally and operationally complex, bear a greater share of the assessment.
  • • Capital requirements under Dodd-Frank and Basel III feature the concept of “countercylicality”: that more capital should be required during periods of economic expansion and less capital required during periods of economic contraction.
  • • The “source of strength” obligation is no longer a policy; it is a statutory requirement.
