Bank Regulators Release Public Section of Resolution Plans

Yesterday, the Federal Reserve and the FDIC issued a joint press release making available the public sections of resolution plans of firms with less than $100 billion in qualifying nonbank assets.  Each plan, commonly known as a living will, must describe the company’s strategy for rapid and orderly resolution under the U.S. Bankruptcy Code in the event of material financial distress or failure of the company. These plans must include both public and confidential sections.

Companies subject to the rule are required to file their resolution plans on a staggered schedule. The largest bank holding companies are required to submit their plans on or before July 1 each year. Nonbank financial companies that are designated by FSOC also must submit on or before July 1. All other firms generally are required to submit their plans on or before December 31 each year.

The public portions of these “living wills” are available on the Federal Reserve and FDIC websites.
