WASHINGTON — Nonbank financial firms with more than $50 billion in total consolidated assets could be subject to further evaluation for designation as systemically important under a proposal issued Tuesday.

The Financial Stability Oversight Council approved a proposal that would subject those companies to additional consideration if they meet one of five other quantitative thresholds: $30 billion in gross notional credit swaps outstanding; $3.5 billion in derivative liabilities; $20 billion of outstanding loans borrowed and bonds issues; 15-to-1 leverage ratio, as measured by total consolidated assets to total equity; or 10% ratio of short-term debt to total consolidated assets. The public will have 60 days to comment on the proposal.
