Federal Reserve Press Release

Release Date: December 17, 2012

The Federal Reserve Board on Monday issued a Supervision and Regulation letter summarizing changes made in recent years to its program for consolidated supervision of large financial institutions.

The updated approach incorporates a stronger focus on the stability of the financial system and broader economy as a whole, while making improvements to the Federal Reserve's program to promote resiliency of individual firms.  The letter is intended to provide greater clarity about supervisory objectives and expectations so that institutions and the general public can better understand the Federal Reserve's focus in supervising these large firms.
