    The Effect of Risk and Organizational Structures on Bank Capital Ratios
    Published on December 15, 2014
    Banks finance their loans and other assets with a mix of deposits, debt, and equity capital. Maintaining adequate capital is important for banks because it absorbs losses and protects them from failure. Capital also protects the financial system and overall economy from the costs that can arise from bank failures. For example, one of the reasons policymakers were concerned about financial stability during the financial crisis was low capital ratios - the ratio of equity capital to total assets - at some of the largest banks, which led to government programs to provide capital to these banks.

    DTZ Foresight: 2015 Annual Occupier Outlook - Cities in China & India to displace US in Top Ten
    Published on December 2, 2014
    The global economic recovery remains in limbo. After the slowest post-war recovery on record, the US and UK have made good progress with near 6% unemployment levels. But, slowdowns in Germany, France, Japan and China are offsetting this. Non-US central banks have been forced to prolong their quantitative easing as financial markets are not ready yet to face higher rates. This was highlighted by recent stock market volatility. Despite the uncertainty around growth, this prolonged period of historically low rates has proven beneficial for occupiers.

    Bank Capital Requirements 2014
    Published on December 4, 2014
    On December 9, the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (the “FRB”) issued a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (the “Proposed Rule”) to establish risk-based capital surcharges for systemically important U.S. bank holding companies (“BHCs”). The Proposed Rule implements for these U.S. BHCs the framework developed by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (“BCBS”) and published by the Financial Stability Board (the “FSB”) (the “Basel G-SIB Framework”) for assessing a common equity surcharge on certain global systemically important banks (“G-SIBs”). Like the Basel G-SIB Framework, the Proposed Rule establishes an indicator-based approach for determining which BHCs are U.S. G-SIBs and the amount of the risk-based capital surcharge that will be applied to each G-SIB. The Proposed Rule, however, would result in higher surcharges than under the Basel G-SIB Framework, with expected surcharges ranging from 1.0% to 4.5%, as compared to 1% to 2.5% under the Basel G-SIB Framework, and includes a new indicator to address the perceived risks of short-term wholesale funding (the “STWF Score”). The Proposed Rule generally follows the Basel G-SIB Framework in approach by implementing the charge as an extension of the capital conservation buffer that can only be satisfied with Common Equity Tier 1 (“CET1”) capital.
