The Fed Just Released The New Bank Rules

The Federal Reserve has just released draft rules relating to a number of Dodd-Frank requirements, as well as Basel III, including a capital surcharge for systemically important financial institutions, limits on leverage and credit-exposure and liquidity requirements. The draft rules are meant to apply to U.S. bank holding companies with more than $50 billion in assets.

Interestingly, the Fed says the rules could also apply to "any nonbank financial firms that may be designated by the Financial Stability Oversight Council as systemically important companies." This leaves the door open to applying the rules to no-bank broker-dealers and previously unregulated investment firms like hedge funds.
You can read the Fed's press release here.

Also included were new requirements governing transactions between banks and new punishments for violators.
The draft would prohibit a bank with $500 billion or more in assets from having credit exposure of more than 10% of its stock and surplus with a counter party bank that also has more than $500 billion in assets
