Washington
First Financial Stability Oversight Council meeting held
WASHINGTON (10/4/10)—The newly created Financial Stability Oversight Council (FSOC), which provides a forum for discussion between various regulatory agencies, held its first meeting on Friday. The Council, which is comprised of National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) Chairman Debbie Matz, Treasury Secretary and FSOC Chairman Tim Geithner, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke, Acting Comptroller of the Currency John Walsh, Securities and Exchange Commission Chairman Mary Schapiro, and Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. Chairman Sheila Bair, and representatives from the Commodity Futures Trading Commission and the Federal Housing Finance Agency, will also oversee the resolution of troubled financial institutions. Matz in a statement released on Friday said that the FSOC would also “strengthen the early warning systems of independent regulators of insured institutions.” “The sharing of information about the health and practices of uninsured financial service providers, in and of itself, will provide a vital tool in our ability to protect tens of millions of insured depositors,” she added. The FSOC during the meeting also approved its Bylaws, its Transparency Policy, an Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking on designating nonbank financial companies for heightened supervision, a request for information regarding the Council's "Volcker Rule" study and recommendations, and an Integrated Implementation Roadmap for both the FSOC and its independent member agencies, according to a release.
