ABA Statement on Banking Agencies: Supplementary Leverage Ratio Proposal

​“We appreciate today’s decision by regulators to implement this provision included in the bipartisan regulatory reform legislation Congress approved last year. This proposal acknowledges that low-risk central bank deposits should be excluded from the Supplementary Leverage Ratio for custodial banks. Going forward, ABA believes this exclusion should apply to all banks. In addition, we are pleased to note that today’s action now allows the agencies to finalize their separate proposal to improve the ‘enhanced’ SLR, and we support them in that important work.”
