Forum members maintain strong amounts of liquidity, which support financial stability by ensuring that a large bank can deal with substantial cash needs without disrupting its ability to extend credit to the economy.

The nation’s largest banks are subject to the most stringent liquidity standards among U.S. banks. These standards ensure that the largest U.S. banks have sufficient liquid resources, such as cash, to meet liquidity needs such as when customers withdraw money from their accounts.
