08:18 EDTMET, PRU, AIG, GEAs MetLife awaits SIFI decision, other non-banks get tough scrutiny, FT says
The Federal Reserve's scrutiny of AIG (AIG) and GE Capital (GE) since those non-banks were designated as systemic risks shows they are being regarded in the same manner as large banks, according Financial Times, citing people familiar with the process. Insurer Prudential Financial (PRU) was deemed a systemic risk last September and rival MetLife (MET) is waiting to see if it will be designated this year, the report noted. Reference Link

16:24 EDTMETMetLife issues statement on preliminary SIFI designation
MetLife chairman, president and CEO Steven Kandarian issued the following statement after the Financial Stability Oversight Council notified the company that it has been preliminarily designated a non-bank Systemically Important Financial Institution, or SIFI: “MetLife strongly disagrees with the Financial Stability Oversight Council’s preliminary designation of MetLife as a SIFI. MetLife is not systemically important under the Dodd-Frank Act criteria. In fact, MetLife has served as a source of financial strength and stability during times of economic distress, including the 2008 financial crisis. The current regulatory system oversees a stable industry that pays out more than $500B every year. Imposing bank-centric capital rules on life insurance companies will make it more difficult for Americans to buy products that help protect their financial futures. At a time when government social safety nets are under increasing pressure and corporate pensions are disappearing, the goal of public policy should be to preserve and encourage competitively priced financial protection for consumers. MetLife is not ruling out any of the available remedies under Dodd-Frank to contest a SIFI designation.”
