This will have the impact of increasing asset levels and possibly reduce retained earnings--both which adversely impact capital ratios. Note consolidation results in an increase in loans and leases, securities, short-term borrowings and long-term debt on the banks’ balance sheets. In addition, there could be a cumulative effect of adopting these new accounting standards resulting in a charge to retained earnings relating to the establishment of loan loss reserves and the reversal of residual interests held. Additionally, limiting banks ability to recognize securitized assets as off-balance sheet exposures could have further consequences on credit creation.
