Fed, FDIC approve merger of BB&T, SunTrust banksBB&T Corp. and SunTrust Banks Inc. received the go-ahead for their $28 billion merger Tuesday from the Federal Reserve's board of governors and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation.

"We'll be even better together for our clients, teammates, communities and shareholders." But the Fed also slapped SunTrust with an enforcement action for unfair and deceptive practices regarding customer fees between 2013 and 2017, which BB&T said the combined bank will comply with.

Boston Fed's Rosengren says capital buffers on banks should be increasingBoston Fed President Eric Rosengren told a conference in Oslo that capital buffers should be rising for big banks, not just in the U.S. but also Japan and Europe. "I am not sure that recent developments and proposals in bank regulation properly reflect the risks we are likely to face in a low interest rate environment that challenges bank profitability and provides less by way of monetary policy buffers. Specifically, capital buffers should be rising now so that there is more room for them to decline if the economy falters. While this is true for the United States, it may be even more true in Japan and Europe," he said. Only the Fed board of governors get to vote on capital buffers, so Rosengren doesn't have a say on U.S. buffers. The Fed in March voted to keep the countercyclical capital buffer at zero.

Chicago Fed board chairwoman steps down amid probe of former employer ExelonAnne Pramaggiore, a nuclear-energy executive embroiled in a review of lobbying activities, has resigned from her position as chairwoman of the board of directors overseeing the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, the bank reportedly . Pramaggiore stepped down from the position on Oct. 25, but the resignation wasn't made public by the Chicago Fed until it was confirmed by a bank spokesperson in response to a question from the Journal. Pramaggiore abruptly retired on Oct. 15 from her job as chief executive of the utilities unit of Exelon Corp. , the largest operator of nuclear plants in the U.S., less than a week after the company said it had received a second grand-jury subpoena from federal prosecutors looking into its lobbying activities in Illinois.
