The Federal Reserve announced that results from the latest supervisory stress tests will be released on Thursday, March 5, and the related results from the Comprehensive Capital Analysis and Review (CCAR) will be released on Wednesday, March 11. Results for both exercises will be released at 4:30 p.m.
The Dodd-Frank Act stress tests are forward-looking exercises conducted by both Federal Reserve supervisors and by large bank holding companies supervised by the Federal Reserve to determine wither institutions have sufficient capital to absorb losses and continue operating during stressful economic and financial conditions over a period of nine quarters. CCAR is an annual exercise by the Federal Reserve to help assess whether large bank holding companies have robust, forward-looking capital planning processes that account for their unique risks and are supported by the companies' risk-measurement and -management practices.
