ABA Statement on FDIC National Rate Cap Proposal

“We thank the FDIC for its important work to modernize brokered deposit regulations, and for taking the more immediate step of addressing the National Rate Cap. We appreciate the FDIC’s recognition that the National Rate Cap was never intended to be applied to well-capitalized banks, and for updating its supervisory and examination manual to reflect that fact. We also look forward to working with the FDIC to further improve the National Rate Cap so that it does not set or interfere with market rates, and provides banks flexibility to meet the needs of their depositors.”
