07:41 EDTUSBBank lending grew in quarter, with Capital One leading pack, WSJ reports
Total loans outstanding at U.S. banks and thrifts grew by $178.5B in the second quarter, with Capital One Financial (COF) leading the big banks by growing its loans at an annualized rate of 12.5%, according to SNL Financial data, reported The Wall Street Journal. SNL said 14 of the 15 largest U.S. banks increased their lending, with only Bank of America (BAC) issuing fewer loans than the quarter before, largely attributed to a drop in U.S. closed-end residential mortgages, the report noted. Other publicly traded large U.S. banks include Bank of America (BAC), Citigroup (C), Goldman Sachs (GS), Morgan Stanley (MS), U.S. Bancorp (USB) and Wells Fargo (WFC). Reference Link

The banks and credit card networks also hope to use Apple Pay to prevent technologies that don't incorporate banks from becoming popular, The Times reported. Publicly traded credit card networks include American Express (AXP), Capital One (COF), Discover (DFS), MasterCard (MA) and Visa (V).

06:40 EDTUSBAgencies finalize liquidity rule for large banks
The Federal Reserve Board, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency finalized a rule yesterday that they said would strengthen the liquidity positions of large financial institutions. The rule will for the first time create a standardized minimum liquidity requirement for large and internationally active banking organizations., according to the agencies. Each institution will be required to hold high quality, liquid assets, or HQLA, such as central bank reserves and government and corporate debt that can be converted easily and quickly into cash in an amount equal to or greater than its projected cash outflows minus its projected cash inflows during a 30-day stress period, the agencies explained. The ratio of the firm’s liquid assets to its projected net cash outflow is its “liquidity coverage ratio,” or LCR, they said. The LCR will apply to all banking organizations with $250B or more in total consolidated assets or $10B or more in on-balance sheet foreign exposure and to these banking organizations’ subsidiary depository institutions that have assets of $10B or more, the agencies reported. The rule also will apply a less stringent, modified LCR to bank holding companies and savings and loan holding companies that do not meet these thresholds, but have $50B or more in total assets. Bank holding companies and savings and loan holding companies with substantial insurance or commercial operations are not covered by the final rule. The final rule is largely identical to the proposed rule, with a few key adjustments in response to comments from the public, the agencies stated. Those adjustments include changes to the range of corporate debt and equity securities included in HQLA, a phasing-in of daily calculation requirements, a revised approach to address maturity mismatch during a 30-day period, and changes in the stress period, calculation frequency, and implementation timeline for the bank holding companies and savings and loan companies subject to the modified LCR. Publicly traded companies in the space include Bank of America (BAC), Citigroup (C), Goldman Sachs (GS), JPMorgan (JPM), Morgan Stanley (MS), U.S. Bancorp (USB) and Wells Fargo (WFC).
