U.S. Basel III Liquidity Coverage Ratio Proposal: Visual Memorandum
Client Memorandum

Created date


The U.S. banking agencies have issued a proposal to implement the Basel III liquidity coverage ratio (LCR) in the United States. The LCR requires large banking organizations to maintain a minimum amount of liquid assets to withstand a 30-day standardized supervisory liquidity stress scenario. The U.S. LCR proposal is more stringent than the Basel Committee’s LCR framework in several significant respects.

Davis Polk’s visual memorandum uses diagrams, flowcharts, timelines, examples and comparison tables to illustrate key aspects of the U.S. LCR proposal.
