Federal Reserve Board announces the individual capital requirements for all large banks, effective on October 1, 2021

Under the Federal Reserve Board’s capital framework for bank holding companies and U.S. intermediate holding companies with $100 billion or more in total consolidated assets, capital requirements are in part determined by the supervisory stress test results. Table 1 shows the total common equity tier 1 (CET1) capital requirement for each large bank, which is made up of several components, including

  • a minimum CET1 capital requirement of 4.5 percent, which is the same for each bank;
  • the stress capital buffer (SCB) requirement, which is determined from the supervisory stress test results and is at least 2.5 percent;1 and
  • if applicable, a capital surcharge for global systemically important banks (G-SIBs), which is at least 1.0 percent.
