Capital Requirements

Prioritizing Safety in Bank Capital Requirements

ABA Position

ABA strongly supports ongoing regulatory reform efforts that aim to make financial systems safer and more robust. This includes supporting improvements to the quality of capital in banks and increasing the risk sensitivity of bank capital requirements in such a way that will enhance the ability of the banking sector to serve customers and promote economic growth. However, ABA believes that many regulatory capital efforts will not make the financial system safer.
