Less Directive to Bank Boards as the Fed Steps Back

first_img June 2, 2017 999 Views Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Less Directive to Bank Boards as the Fed Steps Back About Author: Staff Writer Tagged with: CCAR Comprehensive Capital Analysis Review Dodd-Frank Act Stress Test Federal Reserve Previous: Poor Job Numbers Increase Odds of Rate Hike Next: Lehman’s Brothers Holdings: 2.4 Billion Bankruptcy Offer Accepted Home / Daily Dose / Less Directive to Bank Boards as the Fed Steps Back CCAR Comprehensive Capital Analysis Review Dodd-Frank Act Stress Test Federal Reserve 2017-06-02 Staff Writer Related Articles On Thursday, Federal Reserve Governor Jerome Powell went on record with CNBC saying the Fed plans on reviewing some of the more “outdated” rules mandated by the Dodd-Frank Act that placed additional responsibilities onto banks’ board of directors, although not to the extent as President Trump has suggested.Powell believes that while the Dodd-Frank Act was a success, it is the obligation of the Fed to review the post-crisis reform program for any redundancies, and single out both inefficient and successful policies in order to best remain effective in a new market.One of those redundancies, Powell said, is the requirement of the Dodd-Frank Act that banks’ board of directors ensure the banks are complying with all federal and state regulations, which effectively forced them to get tied up in day-to-day operations rather than focus on the big picture.“I think we’re also working now on a reset really of how our supervision interacts with boards of directors. We’re going to move to a more principles-based approach and we’re going to eliminate many of the really specific directives that we give to boards of directors.”Powell also said he thought it was important to address the Fed’s stress test, the Comprehensive Capital Analysis and Review (CCAR). Banks have raised concerns about the CCAR for years, stating that there was no rhyme or reason to the way the Fed conducted its “qualitative review” portion of the test. However, Former Federal Reserve Governor Daniel Tarullo believed that if banks knew too much information about the qualitative aspect of the stress test, they would be able to game the system. Powell doesn’t think so.“We’re committed to running … as transparent as possible and effective as possible a [sic] set of stress tests … we want to continue and strengthen that.”He also said the Fed will be accepting the public’s thoughts on ways to improve the stress test.This isn’t the only review of the Dodd-Frank Act coming up. The House of Representatives will be voting on the CHOICE Act, HR 10 on Wednesday, June 7, but still has a long way to go before it becomes law. in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, Headlines, News Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Share Savecenter_img Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago  Print This Post The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Subscribelast_img read more

Pochettino tells Tottenham to believe in title challenge

first_img“There are a lot of things you need to take into consideration, but the most important thing is belief and faith in the way you work and, if you give 100 per cent, all can happen.”Eriksen had come off the bench to score the goal that beat Inter Milan in the Champions League last month when only a win would keep Spurs’ European dreams alive.And the Dane delivered again when Harry Kane teed him up in added time to fire past Burnley goalkeeper Joe Hart.Victory was also Pochettino’s 100th in the Premier League as Tottenham manager, a statistic assistant manager Jesus Perez had kept from him beforehand.“Jesus didn’t want to tell me before the game because it’s like a superstition,” he said. “I don’t read too much, I don’t know too much. He knows nearly everything and he didn’t tell me. I think it’s a fantastic achievement for us collectively. I think that is the most important thing.”Burnley remain two points above the drop zone, but limited Tottenham to only occasional chances, with Hart making a high-quality save in each half to deny Erik Lamela.And after ending an eight-game winless run against Brighton last weekend, their defensive display indicated there are positive signs of improvement for Sean Dyche to build on.“We deserved something from the game,” said Dyche. “We limited them by their standards. They’re a top side and they’ve had to work incredibly hard to get something.”Share on: WhatsApp London, United Kingdom | AFP | Tottenham should seek inspiration from an unlikely run to the last 16 of the Champions League to pose a Premier League title challenge, believes Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino.Despite the midweek exertions of drawing 1-1 away to Barcelona to progress in Europe, Spurs closed to within five points of Premier League leaders Manchester City thanks to substitute Christian Eriksen’s stoppage time winner to earn a 1-0 Wembley victory over a stubborn Burnley on Saturday.The win kept Spurs in third place and just three points adrift of second-placed Liverpool, who can return to the top of the table with victory over Manchester United on Sunday.Pochettino knows that many believe the title is a two-horse race between City and Liverpool.But he argued otherwise, citing his side’s recovery from taking just one point from their first three Champions League group games as encouragement that anything can happen.“We are in a very good position,” said Pochettino, who has also had to contend with persistent delays over a move to the club’s news stadium, no summer signings in the transfer market and a host of injuries to members of his squad who shone at the World Cup.“The reality is that after 17 games we are third. That is a massive achievement for us.“All is possible. Look what happened in the Champions League after three games. We had only one point and we believed it was possible and in the end we are now in the next stage.last_img read more

AMERICAN OAKS STAKES QUOTES – SATURDAY DECEMBER 31, 2016

first_imgTRAINER QUOTES             KEITH DESORMEAUX, DECKED OUT, WINNER: “She won the Providencia on Santa Anita Derby Day on soft ground so I definitely wasn’t worried. We don’t get this weather too often here in southern California. We’re Louisiana-breds so I’m glad I’m the trainer today.“She looked tired (in the stretch.) She looked like she was starting to labor so I was surprised that she continued on. She showed her heart today.“I think that twenty-two and change took its toll on (Sassy Little Lila, pacesetter). The reoccurring theme in my mind is that she has so much heart. I had no idea who won the photo at first.“You can’t ever get enough of these Grade ones. I have to compliment the team. Grade ones are always what we’re after and her broodmare value just skyrocketed so it’s very gratifying. To be able to buy these kinds of horses and get these goals accomplished, it’s so fun and it’s been a helluva year.“She was training awesome coming into today. I think a key decision was not run her at Del Mar. We skipped a race in hopes of getting her fresh and that may have been the winning decision.” -30- LUIS SAEZ, SASSY LITTLE LILA, SECOND: “I thought we were going to be right there – if we didn’t win it was going to be a dead heat. When I came back and saw the result, we got beat. I thought we had it. The course was fine. I was in front and didn’t notice anything wrong. I felt like she was very comfortable.” JOCKEY QUOTES KENT DESORMEAUX, DECKER OUT, WINNER: “It’s been that kind of year for the Desormeaux family. It was doubtful from the quarter pole. I wasn’t getting there fast enough and I thought I had won, but with the recent photo finishes, I was scared to have an opinion. The end result was close, because she’s knocked on the door all year. She’s been on the south end, and today she got on the north side.“(The turf course) has a lot of give to it. I wouldn’t call it yielding, but it’s definitely soft.” NOTES: The winning owners are Matt Bryan (Big Chief Racing, LLC) of Ft. Worth, TX, Head of Plains Partners, LLC and Gene A.
