CHARLOTTE, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep. 3, 2015--
Bank of America today announced the Federal Reserve Board and the Office
of the Comptroller of the Currency have permitted Bank of America and
its national subsidiary banks to begin using the Advanced approaches
capital framework to determine risk-based capital requirements in the
fourth quarter of 2015.
With the approval to exit parallel run, Bank of America will be required
to report regulatory capital ratios and risk-weighted assets under both
the Standardized and Advanced approaches. The approach that yields the
lower ratio is to be used to assess capital adequacy.
As previously disclosed in the company’s second-quarter 2015 10-Q
filing, incorporating certain modifications into the company’s internal
analytical models results in an estimated pro-forma Basel 3 Common
Equity Tier 1 ratio on a fully phased-in basis of approximately 9.3
percent at June 30, 20151.
1 Bank of America’s Basel 3 Advanced approaches estimate
reflects the full impact of Basel 3 changes to capital composition after
the transition period ends on January 1, 2019. This estimate also
assumes approval by U.S. banking regulators of the company’s Internal
Models Methodology (IMM).
