This document sets out the proposed assessment methodologies for identifying non-bank non-insurer global systemically important financial institutions (NBNI G-SIFIs), extending the SIFI framework that currently covers banks and insurers to all other financial institutions. It includes a high-level framework for identifying G-SIFIs and implementation approaches that will apply across all NBNI financial entities, and detailed sector-specific methodologies for (i) finance companies, (ii) market intermediaries (securities broker-dealers), and (iii) investment funds (including hedge funds).
