Client Memorandum

Created date

Yesterday, the Financial Stability Oversight Council issued its final rule and interpretive guidance setting forth the process by which it will designate a nonbank financial company as systemically important under the Dodd-Frank Act. Although the final rule contains some noteworthy modifications and clarifications, it adopts without substantial change the proposal from October 2011, including the three-stage designation process and the quantitative screening criteria for the Stage I analysis.
