The Federal Reserve has announced that results from the latest supervisory stress tests conducted as part of the Dodd-Frank Act will be released on Thursday, June 23, and the related results from the Comprehensive Capital Analysis and Review (CCAR) will be released on Wednesday, June 29. Results for both exercises will be released at 4:30 p.m. EDT.
The Dodd-Frank Act stress tests are forward-looking exercises conducted by both Federal Reserve staff and by large bank holding companies supervised by the Fed. The exercises help assess whether 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 Fed to help assess whether large bank holding companies have forward-looking capital planning processes that account for their unique risks and are supported by the companies' risk-measurement and -management practices.
