Vice President – CUSO/IHC Regulatory Reporting Specialist

Employment contract:

Standard / Permanent

Location:

Jersey City, New Jersey, United States of America

Job/mission:

MISCELLANEOUS

Reference:

FIN003421

Business Overview:

The Federal Reserve tailors its regulatory requirements for and supervision of foreign banking organizations (FBOs) to account for the size, complexity, risk profile and financial activities of their U.S. operations. In the supervision and regulation of FBOs, the Federal Reserve gives due regard to the principle of national treatment and equality of competitive opportunity.

 

Large foreign banking organizations (Large FBOs) are FBOs with combined U.S. assets of $100 billion or more. With respect to regulation, Large FBOs are subject to prudential requirements set forth in the Board’s regulations, including Regulation YY. The enhanced prudential standards in Regulation YY include liquidity standards and requirements for overall risk management of the combined U.S. operations of a Large FBO. In addition, Regulation YY requires FBOs with U.S. non-branch assets of $50 billion or more to form a U.S. intermediate holding company (IHC) and tailors capital, liquidity, and risk-management requirements to that IHC based on its risk profile.

 

Less complex foreign banking organizations (Less Complex FBOs) are FBOs with combined U.S. assets of $100 billion or less. These FBOs mostly operate in the United States through branches and agencies and have relatively small non-branch activities.

 

FBOs with more than one banking office also receive a combined U.S. operations (CUSO) rating, based on a holistic assessment of the U.S. operations, taking into account the rating assigned to any prudentially supervised entity and an assessment of other U.S. offices.

The job’s main responsibility is to review all required regulatory and financial reports and to ensure their correctness, consistency and prompt submission.
