What does the new Community Bank Leverage Ratio mean for your bank? And how does risk-based capital fit in?


  • Understand the rationale of Congress requiring a Community Bank Leverage Ratio (CBLR)
  • Determine whether your bank should opt-in or opt-out, and the advantages of each
  • Evaluate the potential implications if your bank does not meet this ratio
  • Know when it’s in the bank’s best interest to not meet the CBLR
  • Project future capital ratios
  • Analyze the role capital plays in shareholder value
  • Understand the inverse relationship between capital and return on equity
  • Appreciate the importance of integrating capital planning with strategic planning
  • Review the regulatory model for stressing capital
  • Employ a practical approach for developing a capital contingency plan


Congress has created a conflict for bank regulators. President Trump signed the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief and Consumer Protection Act on May 24, 2018. This law requires bank regulators to establish a Community Bank Leverage Ratio for banks under $10 billion in assets, that would provide a well-capitalized bank designation for banks that meet this ratio, regardless of risk-based capital. The FDIC has set the Community Bank Leverage Ratio at 9.0%. The conflict is that regulators believe that one size does not fit all – one capital level does not fit all banks. The amount of capital to determine capital adequacy depends on the risk within the bank. This webinar will explain and make sense of this conflict, and then use the information to benefit your bank. It will also address balancing the impression from regulators that banks need more capital, with the importance of increasing shareholder value.
