    Abstract

    I would like to take the opportunity to discuss one of those challenging issues—the orderly resolution of systemically important financial institutions (SIFIs). The Dodd–Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act provided important new authority to the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) to resolve SIFIs. Prior to the recent crisis, the FDIC’s receivership authority was limited to federally insured banks and thrift institutions. There was no authority to place the holding company or affiliates of an insured institution or any other nonbank financial company into an FDIC receivership to avoid systemic consequences. The lack of this authority severely constrained the ability of the government to resolve a SIFI. This authority has now been provided to the FDIC under the Dodd–Frank Act.
