With this model in hand, we then look at individual, bank-level data for the eight U.S global systemically important banks (GSIBs
) based on publicly available sources.
Under the US rule, TLAC must be no less than 18 percent, plus relevant buffers (CCB, CCyB, and the GSIB
surcharge), of RWA and 9.5 percent of total leverage exposure (meaning on-balance-sheet assets, plus off-balance-sheet exposures).
In order to comply with the current Basel III rules, the eligible capital of a non-GSIB (GSIB
with [[alpha].sup.GSIB] = 2.5) with our stylized asset portfolio must be 5.4 percent (6.6 percent) of total assets plus the amount of capital required for operational risks.

Furthermore, in 2015 the Federal Reserve Board approved a rule requiring firms it deems global systemically important banks (GSIBs
) to maintain a larger capital cushion --more than that required of smaller banks--in order to increase their resiliency against financial distress.
, similarly declined by $149 billion, or 8 percent, over the two years to $1.73 trillion.
Another good prospect for simplification would be the elimination of DFAST for GSIBs
. CCAR provides more information than DFAST by including intended capital actions that are crucial to a regulatory determination of whether a bank can meet its expected minimum nine quarters into a period of stress.
This is particularly important for the UK because six of the EU's thirty GSIBs
operate as legal institutions in the UK.
The A2 rating reflects Moody's view of GSIB

The GAUL policy has a rider--the guaranteed survivor income benefit (GSIB
)--that pays a fixed monthly income for the life of the beneficiary (versus the more traditional lump sum benefit).
In November 2015, the Financial Stability Board published a document that acknowledged the problem of contagion by applying bail-in, (110) and suggested that "[authorities should place appropriate prudential restrictions on G-SIBs' and other internationally active banks' holdings of instruments issued by GSIBs
...." The rationale of such a principle is "[t]o reduce the potential for a GSIB
resolution to spread contagion into the global banking system." (111)
Fitch Ratings has announced that it has assigned its ratings on Goldman Sachs International Bank (GSIB
