    US Agencies Request Comments on Use and Impact of CAMELS Ratings

    October 18, 2019

    US Agencies (FDIC and FED) are seeking information and comments from interested parties regarding the consistency of ratings assigned by the agencies under the Uniform Financial Institutions Rating System (UFIRS). The assigned ratings are commonly known as CAMELS ratings. The agencies are also interested in receiving feedback about the use of CAMELS ratings in their bank application and enforcement action processes. Comments must be received within 60 days after date of publication in Federal Register.

    CAMELS rating system is an acronym of the six evaluation components—Capital, Asset Quality, Management, Earnings, Liquidity, and Sensitivity to market risk. In addition, the CAMELS rating system contains an overall composite rating. The agencies are issuing this request to seek public input on how CAMELS ratings are assigned to supervised institutions and the implications of such ratings in the application and enforcement action processes. This effort to seek comments and information is consistent with the agencies’ commitment to increase transparency, improve efficiency, support innovation, and provide opportunities for public feedback. This request for information is not a proposal to modify the CAMELS rating definitions. Such definitions were issued through FFIEC. The agencies encourage comments from interested members of the public, including, but not limited to, insured depository institutions, other financial institutions or companies, individual depositors, and consumers, consumer groups, trade associations, and other members of the financial services industry.

    The US Agencies typically communicate the CAMELS ratings to an institution through a formal, written report of examination or other official agency correspondence. The CAMELS ratings and the report of examination or other official agency correspondence are property of the agencies and are provided to the institution’s board of directors and management for their confidential use. Given the confidentiality requirements applicable to financial institutions’ CAMELS ratings and other report of examination findings and conclusions, the agencies realize that there are limitations on responses regarding the consistency of how CAMELS ratings are assigned. The agencies, however, welcome general comments that do not breach these confidentiality requirements.
