“The financial services industry is committed to effective resolution and recovery planning through the living wills process.  The firms have taken meaningful, concrete steps to ensure their plans are credible and that no firm is too big to fail.  The living wills process builds on the many improvements that have made the U.S. financial system stronger, safer and more simple, including the doubling of capital and liquidity, and structural changes to reduce risk and streamline business models.”
