F.S. 663.055
663.055 Capital requirements.
(1) To qualify for a license under this part, the proposed capitalization of the international banking corporation must be in such amount as the office determines is necessary, taking into consideration the risk profile of the international banking corporation and the ability of the international banking corporation to operate a licensed office in a safe and sound manner. In making this determination, the office must consider the financial resources of the international banking corporation, including:
(a) The international banking corporation’s current and projected capital position, profitability, level of indebtedness, and business and strategic plans;
(b) The financial condition of any of the international banking corporation’s existing offices located in the United States;
(c) The minimum capital requirements of the international banking corporation’s home-country jurisdiction; and
(d) The capital ratio standards used in the United States and in the international banking corporation’s home-country jurisdiction.
(2) The proposed capitalization of the international banking corporation must be in such amount as the office deems adequate, but in no case may the total capital accounts of the international banking corporation be less than the minimum required under s. 658.21(2) to establish a state bank.
(3) The office may specify such other conditions as it determines are appropriate, considering the public interest and the need to maintain a safe, sound, and competitive banking system in this state.
(4) For the purpose of this part, the capital accounts of and capital ratio standards for an international banking corporation must be determined in accordance with rules adopted by the commission. In adopting such rules, the commission shall consider similar rules adopted by bank regulatory agencies in the United States and the need to provide reasonably consistent regulatory requirements for international banking corporations doing business in this state, as well as capital adequacy standards of an international banking corporation’s home-country jurisdiction.
