WASHINGTON — Regulators next week plan to finalize a tough new liquidity measure as well as propose margin requirements for banks engaged in swaps activities.

The Federal Reserve Board will hold an open meeting Wednesday to consider a final rule instituting the "liquidity coverage ratio" for banks with over $50 billion in assets. The Fed proposed the new liquidity requirement in October along with the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. and Office of the Comptroller of the Currency. The proposal would set new standards for the types of high-quality liquid assets banks must hold to cover net cash outflows over a 30-day period.
