NCUA's New Risk-Based Capital Proposal: Where is it Headed?

Presenter: Dennis Dollar, Dollar Associates

NCUA’s proposed risk-based capital rules will change the playing field for all federally insured credit unions. In this session, former NCUA Chairman Dennis Dollar takes an in-depth look at the history behind this proposed rule, what the practical implications will be and what might be some of the improvements that could be made to make the proposal more workable for credit unions. All credit unions will be impacted by this new proposed regulation. Since the need for capital modernization is the generational issue of credit unions today and with the need for increased earnings through managed risk stronger than ever, any credit union should seek to understand as fully as possible the proposed risk-based capital rule. They should also attempt to influence the final version of the rule through the public comment period with concrete suggestions for improving the rule. The insider’s perspective this session will provide should help attendees gain a working knowledge of:

  • What is the history of the risk-based capital proposal?
  • What is the difference between it and PCA net worth rules?
  • What are the positives of risk-based capital?
  • What are the weaknesses in the proposed rule?
  • What are the suggested improvements?
  • How do I write an effective comment letter?
  • What should happen next on risk-based capital?

Don’t miss this very timely and in-depth session from one of the industry’s leading regulatory experts on a proposed rule that is one of the most far reaching in recent history.
