GE Capital Exits European Consolidated Prudential Supervision
- Reflects major transformation of GE Capital
Boston, Mass. - March 30, 2017 - GE (NYSE: GE) announced today that GE Capital’s non-U.S. activities are no longer subject to consolidated supervision by the UK’s Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA). This completes GE Capital’s global exit from consolidated supervision, having had its designation as a Systemically Important Financial Institution (“SIFI”) removed in June 2016.
“Since we announced our plan to divest the majority of GE Capital assets less than two years ago, we have transformed GE Capital and simplified our regulatory footprint. GE Capital is a critical part of the GE Store and works with GE and its customers to drive growth,” said Rich Laxer, GE Capital Chairman and CEO.
Since the announcement in April, 2015, GE Capital has signed and closed deals representing $198 billion of ending net investment (ENI). GE Capital has largely completed the process of selling approximately $200 billion of GE Capital non-core businesses.
