OFR Released FY 2013 Annual Report

In its FY 2013 Annual Report, the OFR documented its key findings from research and analysis of the financial system, analysis of potential threats to financial stability, and the status of the Office’s efforts in accomplishing its mission. In his letter, Director Richard Berner said the state of the economy has improved since the OFR’s inception, although financial threats still persist. Berner wrote:

“The current financial environment, marked by low interest rates and low volatility, has spurred risk taking, making markets and institutions more vulnerable to a sharp increase in interest rates, volatility, or both.”

Also in the report, OFR released two new analytical tools to assess and monitor threats to financial stability, one of them being a Financial Stability Monitor provides a snapshot of several financial stability indicators.
