$200 Billion Cap On Collapse Fund – Barney Frank

New York (HedgeCo.net) – The fund which the U.S. House Financial Services Committee is setting up to dismantle large insolvent financial institutions will be limited to $200 billion, MarketWatch reported earlier today.

“The cap we have is $200 billion,” House Financial Services Committee Chairman Barney Frank said, referring to legislation which would collect funds from large financial institutions and hedge funds with $10 billion in capital or more.

The Chairman’s regulatory-overhaul package, in opposition to the Obama administration, which wants to collect fees after a company fails, is up for vote by the House this month. The fund would be used to make payments to creditors and counterparties of a large failing financial institution so that its collapse does not unsettle the financial markets.
