Ian Katz quoted in MarketWatch

"Fed's Tarullo may have provided 'major headache relief' for biggest banks in his farewell speech" by Greg Robb


Financials analyst Ian Katz was quoted in Greg Robb's MarketWatch article, entitled "Fed's Tarullo may have provided 'major headache relief' for biggest banks in his farewell speech". 

Robb writes:

Tarullo, who spearheaded Fed bank regulation for eight years and developed a reputation for bluntness in his dealings with bankers, had a "softer-than-usual tone," agreed Ian Katz, an analyst at Capital Alpha Partners.

In his swan song, Tarullo made a case for ending the qualitative part of the annual stress test, a move that would provide "major headache relief" for the biggest banks, Katz said.
