Bank regulators consider easing Leverage Ratio requirements
Bloomberg and Risk Magazine separately report that the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision is considering easing requirements for the Leverage Ratio.
From the Bloomberg article:
After financial firms complained for about a year that some of the new requirements will make it overly expensive to offer derivatives to clients, regulators planned to discuss possible concessions at a private meeting starting Wednesday, according to two people with knowledge of the talks. The meeting consists of policy advisers to a group of global authorities that includes the Federal Reserve, the European Central Bank and the Bank of England, the people said.
