Regulatory Update: Latest Developments at the FDIC, Federal Reserve Board, and the OCC Impacting Financial Reporting
9:00
 – 10:00 AM
Since the spring 2023 bank crisis, the federal banking agencies have proposed significant changes to the capital and long-term debt requirements for large banking organizations that are expected to have a meaningful impact on the operations (including financial reporting) of banks of all sizes. In particular, the capital rules would alter the capital treatment of unrealized losses on certain debt securities that banks hold as assets. This session will discuss these developments and their financial reporting impacts, as well as:
• Reporting Securities on Financial Statements

• Supervisory Matters
• Revisions & Proposed Revisions to Bank Call Reports
• Reporting Requirements

ESG Reporting
12:55 – 1:55 PM

Market, investor, and key stakeholder-driven interests have now given way to formal regulation of required reporting of sustainability and ESG formatted information with expanded requirements under strict deadlines. In this session, we will discuss the recently approved SEC rule from March 6, 2024 regarding climate-related disclosures that actually lags behind the timing requirements of the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) and California Rules 253 and 261. The final SEC rule applies to registrants depending on their size and scope of operations. Both CSRD and the California rules go further than the final SEC rule in terms of scope of the information being required to be reported and assured by an independent third party. This session will focus on:
• Complying with the Final Approved SEC Rules
• Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD)
• European Sustainability Reporting Standards (ESRS) Requirements & Disclosures

• California Climate Legislation—SB 253, SB 261, and AB 1305

Break
1:55 – 2:00 PM

Accounting for and Auditing of Digital Assets

The FASB has yet to release an accounting standard dealing with digital assets.

In this session, an expert will address:
• Fundamentals of Distributed Ledger Technology

• Types of Crypto Asset Transactions
• Accounting & Auditing Considerations on Certain Crypto Assets

   – Investment in Cryptocurrencies
   – Receipt of Cryptocurrencies in Exchange for Goods or Services—ASC606, ASC610, ASC845
