FED is adopting a proposal to revise for three years, without extension, the reporting forms and the associated instructions for Capital Assessments and Stress Testing (FR Y-14A/Q/M; OMB No. 7100-0341). The revisions, including draft forms and instructions, are applicable with the reports as of December 31, 2018.
These collections of information are applicable to the U.S. intermediate holding companies and the top-tier bank holding companies with consolidated assets of USD 100 billion or more. This family of information collections comprises the following three reports:
- The semi-annual FR Y-14A, which collects quantitative projections of balance sheet, income, losses, and capital across a range of macroeconomic scenarios, and qualitative information on methodologies used to develop internal projections of capital across scenarios.
- The quarterly FR Y-14Q, which collects granular data on various asset classes, including loans, securities, trading assets, and pre-provision net revenue (PPNR) for the reporting period.
- The monthly FR Y-14M, which contains three retail portfolio- and loan-level schedules, along with one detailed address matching schedule to supplement two of the portfolio- and loan-level schedules.
The estimated number of respondents is 36 and the respondent firms are required to submit up to 18 filings each year: two semi-annual FR Y-14A filings, four quarterly FR Y-14Q filings, and 12 monthly FR Y-14M filings. On August 08, 2018, FED published a notice in the Federal Register requesting public comment for 60 days on the revision, without extension, of the Capital Assessments and Stress Testing (FR Y-14A/Q/M). The proposal was to revise sub-schedule L.5 (Derivatives and SFT Profile) of the FR Y-14Q in Schedule L (Counterparty) by adding back mistakenly omitted items for total stressed net current exposure to be reported under the two supervisory stressed scenarios. With the addition of these items, the instructions would be changed to modify the associated ranking methodologies for the yearly stressed/Comprehensive Capital Analysis and Review (CCAR) submission in sub-schedule L.5 to require the top 25 counterparties to be reported as ranked by the total stressed net current exposure. The comment period for this notice expired on October 09, 2018. FED had received one comment from a banking organization, with the request that FED adopt these changes and publish the associated materials as soon as possible to provide adequate time to implement and test the changes.
