Ally Financial: Fed releases Ally Bank from capital, liquidity commitments

Ally Financial announced that the Federal Reserve has released Ally Bank from the capital, liquidity, and business plan commitments that had been made in connection with its application for membership in the Federal Reserve System, including the commitment to maintain a Tier 1 leverage ratio of at least 15%. Ally Bank may now manage its capital and liquidity subject to applicable regulatory requirements and, as a result, is expected to distribute a dividend of approximately $2.9B to Ally Financial during the third quarter of 2017. "The release of these application commitments is a significant milestone for the company," said Ally CEO Jeffrey Brown. "This development completes the process of normalizing our regulatory framework, allowing us to optimize our capital and funding structure on a level playing field with other banks, and is a critical step in ensuring we remain on track for delivering on our financial and strategic objectives."
