WOCCU Urges Further Proportionality to FSB in Too Big to Fail Evaluation

WOCCU urged the Financial Stability Board (FSB) to consider issuing clearer guidance on factors that should be considered by national level regulators when developing proportionate approaches to the numerous standards adopted since the financial crisis, many of which are targeted to the "Too-Big-To-Fail" institutions.  

WOCCU noted that the complexity, usefulness, and corresponding regulatory burden and costs for smaller non-systemically important credit unions often becomes questionable, particularly those that are only involved in deposit taking and simple retail consumer lending.  While many of the Too Big to Fail Reforms were necessary, the application to credit unions and other mutuals needs to be appropriately and proportionately tailored.

The comments came as part of the FSB's Evaluation of the Too-Big-To-Fail Reforms.
