Economic and CU Monitor (Special Topic: Risk-Based Capital (RBC2) - March 2015

This month's special topic: 

Risk-Based Capital (RBC2)

In January, NCUA released its revised risk-based capital proposal (RBC2). The initial proposal prompted a strong response from the industry, as more than 2,000 comment letters were sent to the agency. The second proposal includes revised risk weights, an increase in the asset threshold from $50 million to $100 million, and a longer implementation period. Despite these and other changes, the question remains as to whether this rule is needed for such a well-capitalized industry.
