  • On August 5, 2013, the Federal Reserve Board (the “FRB”), the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (the “FDIC”), and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (the “OCC”) published in the Federal Register proposed supervisory guidance on implementing section 165(i)(2) of the Dodd-Frank Act regarding annual company-run stress tests. Stress tests are an important part of a banking organization’s risk management practice, supporting a company’s forward looking assessment of its risk and helping to ensure that the company has sufficient capital to support its operations through periods of stress.
