- JPMorgan's (JPM +0.5%) departure would leave BNY Mellon (BK +1.4%) as the only bank left handling this niche corner of the $1.6T repo market.
- "This area is not core to our growth strategy," says JPMorgan's Michael Albanese.
- American banks in general have been backing away from what used to be the low cost, high volume repo market thanks to post-crisis rules heightening liquidity requirements and capital expenses.

- Increasing costs and weaker capital markets activity are a bad combination, but they're coming should the U.K. vote to exit the EU, says KBW's Brian Kleinhanzl, expecting a two-year transition period with those headwinds.
- Longer-term, though, Brexit should be a wash for the U.S. universal banks.
- As for the shorter-term, banks would need to have presence in both the U.K. and EU - the transition should be a manageable expense, but the run-rate costs would remain.
- Kleinhanzl sees JPMorgan (NYSE:JPM) and Goldman Sachs (NYSE:GS) as most exposed to the fallout thanks to the relatively large amount of income each generates from U.K. units. Citigroup and the custodial banks - BNY Mellon (NYSE:BK), State Street (NYSE:STT), Northern Trust (NASDAQ:NTRS) - should be less impacted since operations in the U.K. are smaller relative to the overall companies.

- The S&P 500 is down just 0.25%, but the financial sector (XLF -1.5%) is taking a far larger beating as the idea of higher interest rates fades, with German 10-year yields falling below zero, and the U.S. 10-year Treasury yield within sight of its all-time low. KBE -2.3%, KRE -2.3%
- The FOMC concludes its two-day policy meeting tomorrow, at which updated economic projections and dots will be unveiled, along with a Janet Yellen press conference.
- How much of the panic into fixed-income is due to concern about the U.K. exiting the EU will become evident next Thursday night as that country's Brexit votes are tallied.

- BNY Mellon (BK -0.3%) in 2015 agreed to pay $714M to a number of authorities and its customers over charges it didn't provide clients with the best rates available on FX transactions from 2000 to at least 2011.
- The SEC was not dealt with at that time, and today the bank and that agency announce a $30M payment to settle the charges.

- In separate public comments today, Fed governors Daniel Tarullo and Jerome Powell said the Fed will require the eight largest U.S. banks to hold even more capital if they want to pass stress tests.
- The goal, says Powell, is to make capital requirements so difficult that the largest lenders have to honestly assess whether it would be a better idea to break themselves up.
- For now, the Fed is going to make 2015's capital surcharges permanent, which alone makes things tougher. "Really quite significant, probably the most significant additional potential capital requirement on the horizon." says former OCC Director John Dugan.
- The eight: Bank of America (BAC -0.1%), Citigroup (C -0.3%), JPMorgan (JPM -0.4%), Morgan Stanley (MS -0.7%), Wells Fargo (WFC -0.5%), State Street (STT -0.7%), Goldman Sachs (GS -0.7%), BNY Mellon (BK -0.5%)

- The meme of rates lower for longer has been stood on its head in the last 24 hours thanks to some decent economic data, but also surprisingly hawkish Fedspeak yesterday.
- The fixed-income world now believes remarks from the Fed's Williams and Lockhart yesterday may have been a preview of what we'll get when the real power speaks tomorrow - Fischer and Dudley - and then on May 27, when Janet Yellen gives a speech.
- Up at 2 ET are the minutes from the FOMC's April meeting.
- The 10-year yield is higher by five basis points to 1.82% and short-term rate markets have upped expectations for a Fed move this year.
- XLF +1.85%, KBE +3.15%, KRE +3.3%
- Bank of America (BAC +3.7%), Citigroup (C +4.2%), JPMorgan (JPM +3.2%), Wells Fargo (WFC +2.1%), U.S. Bancorp (USB +2.1%), Regions (RF +3.3%), KeyCorp (KEY +3.7%), PNC Financial (PNC +2.7%), Fifth Third (FITB +3.7%), Capital One (COF +1.9%), E*Trade (ETFC +4.4%), Schwab (SCHW +4.8%), MetLife (MET +2.9%), Prudential (PRU +3.4%), Lincoln National (LNC +4.2%), BNY Mellon (BK +2.3%), Northern Trust (NTRS +2.9%)

- Q1 net income of $804M or $0.73 per share vs. $766M and $0.67 one year ago. This year's result was cut by one penny per share thanks to litigation and restructuring charges.
- The company made progress on expenses, with noninterest costs of $2.6B falling 3% from a year ago, helping to generate 250 bps of positive operating leverage. 16.2M shares bought back during quarter for $577M. Adjusted ROTCE of 21%. Adjusted supplementary leverage ratio is north of 5%.
- Assets under custody of $29.1T up 2%. AUM of $1.64T down 5% thanks to net outflows and the stronger dollar (principally vs. the pound).

- As leaked last night, regulators have sent so-called living wills by five major U.S. banks back to the drawing board. JPMorgan (NYSE:JPM), Wells Fargo (NYSE:WFC), Bank of America (NYSE:BAC), BNY Mellon (NYSE:BK), and State Street (NYSE:STT) have until Oct. 1 to revise their plans or face potential penalties.
- Official announcement
- Regulators were split on Goldman Sachs (NYSE:GS) and Morgan Stanley (NYSE:MS), with the FDIC giving Goldman a thumbs down, but the Fed not, and just the opposite for Morgan.
- Citigroup (NYSE:C) is the only one of the major banks not to have their plan rejected, though both the Fed and FDIC found "shortcomings" that need to be addressed by July 2017.
- The next time you're thinking about complaining over some silly fee charged by your lender, have a thought for the armies of accountants, analysts, and lawyers the bank is paying to comply with D.C.'s whims.

Wed, Apr. 13, 4:42 AM
- At least half of the eight U.S. banks labeled "systemically important" are expected to receive "harsh verdicts" regarding their so-called living wills, sending them scrambling to revise plans about how they would handle a potential bankruptcy, WSJ reports.
- The move, which could come as soon as this week, would raise the prospect of higher capital requirements or other regulatory sanctions for some of the institutions, and underscore fears that the firms remain "too big to fail" without a taxpayer bailout.

Thu, Apr. 7, 3:09 PM
- The 10-year Treasury yield at 1.69% has returned back to levels not seen since the panicky action in mid-February. And while the Fed has marked down its expectation of rate hikes this year to just two, short-term interest rate markets haven't even priced in one.
- This leaves those whose business model depends on riding the yield curve having to contend with not only a middling macro picture, but - once again - a rates lower for longer picture (although Jamie Dimon says his big fear is that markets aren't pricing in nearly enough in the way of higher rates).
- Citigroup (C -4.1%), Bank of America (BAC -3.3%), U.S. Bancorp (USB -2.8%), KeyCorp (KEY -3.4%), Regions Financial (RF -3.4%), BNY Mellon (BK -3.6%), E*Trade (ETFC -4.7%), Manulife (MFC -5.2%), Lincoln National (LNC -3.6%)
