FED intends to begin publishing a semiannual report presenting its view of the outlook for U.S. financial stability, on November 28. The financial stability report will include a summary of the FED framework for assessing the resilience of the financial system in the United States. The report will also include an evaluation of the indicators related to the main financial stability vulnerabilities tracked by FED—namely, asset valuations, borrowing by businesses and households, leverage in the financial sector, and funding risks.
The report is intended to help the public and market participants understand and evaluate the assessment of financial stability conditions by FED. The report will be similar to the ones published by other central banks and will complement the annual report of the Financial Stability Oversight Council, which is chaired by the Secretary of the Treasury and includes the FED Chairman and other financial regulators. The report will not cover policy matters such as the annual determination of whether to activate the countercyclical capital buffer (CCyB). FED plans to conduct its annual review of the CCyB in January. FED intends to publish future semiannual financial stability reports in the spring and fall.
