The consolidated supervision framework has two primary objectives:


  • Enhancing resiliency of a firm to lower the probability of its failure or inability to serve as a financial intermediary.
    • Each firm is expected to ensure that the consolidated organization (or the combined U.S. operations in the case of FBOs) and its core business lines can survive under a broad range of internal or external stresses.
  • Reducing the impact on the financial system and the broader economy in the event of a firm’s failure or material weakness.
    • Each firm is expected to ensure the sustainability of its critical operations and banking offices under a broad range of internal or external stresses.
