Comparing and Contrasting CCAR and DFAST
The Federal Reserve System’s (the Fed) regulatory responsibilities include the oversight of bank holding companies (BHCs), savings and loan holding companies, state member banks, and systemically important nonbank financial institutions (SIFIs). The Fed has reacted to some of the negative outcomes associated with the recent financial crisis by creating a new framework and programs for the supervision of the largest and most complex financial institutions. Among these is an annual assessment of whether BHCs with $50 billion or more in total consolidated assets have effective capital planning processes and adequate capital to absorb losses during stressful economic conditions. This annual assessment includes two related programs: (1) The Comprehensive Capital Analysis and Review (CCAR) and (2) Dodd-Frank Act Supervisory Stress Testing (DFAST).
Comprehensive Capital Analysis and Review (CCAR)
The CCAR evaluates a BHC’s capital adequacy, capital adequacy process, and its planned capital distributions (dividend payments and common stock repurchases, etc.). As part of CCAR, the Fed evaluates whether BHCs have sufficient capital to continue operations during times of economic and financial market stress and whether they have robust, forward-looking capital planning processes that account for their unique risks. The Fed may object to a BHC’s capital plan based on either quantitative or qualitative grounds. If the Fed objects to a BHC’s capital plan, the BHC may not make any capital distribution unless the Fed indicates in writing that it does not object to the distribution.
The Capital Plan Rule
The capital plan rule 1 specifies four mandatory elements of a capital plan:
- An assessment of the expected uses and sources of capital over the planning horizon that reflects the BHC’s size, complexity, risk profile, and scope of operations, assuming both expected and stressful conditions, including
- Estimates of projected revenues, losses, reserves, and pro forma capital levels and capital ratios (including the minimum regulatory capital ratios and the tier 1 common ratio) over the planning horizon under baseline conditions, supervisory stress scenarios, and at least one stress scenario developed by the BHC appropriate to its business model and portfolios;
- A discussion of how the company will maintain all minimum regulatory capital ratios and a pro forma tier 1 common ratio above 5 percent under expected conditions and the stressed scenarios;
- A discussion of the results of the stress tests required by law or regulation, and an explanation of how the capital plan takes these results into account; and
- A description of all planned capital actions over the planning horizon
- A detailed description of the BHC’s process for assessing capital adequacy;
- The BHC’s capital policy; and
- A discussion of any baseline changes to the BHC’s business plan that are likely to have a material impact on the BHC’s capital adequacy or liquidity.
Dodd-Frank Act Supervisory Stress Testing (DFAST)
The DFAST is a forward-looking quantitative evaluation of the impact of stressful economic and financial market conditions on the capital adequacy of the institutions subject to these requirements. This program serves to inform the Fed, the bank holding companies subject to this regulatory requirement, and the general public, how these institutions’ capital ratios might change during a hypothetical set of adverse economic conditions as designed by the Fed. In addition to the annual supervisory stress test conducted by the Fed, each BHC is required to conduct annual company-run stress tests under the same three supervisory scenarios and conduct a mid-cycle stress test under scenarios developed specifically by each BHC to reflect the intrinsic risks associated with that institution.
CCAR vs DFAST
While DFAST is complementary to CCAR, both efforts are distinct testing exercises. Both rely on similar processes, data, supervisory exercises, and internal resource requirements. CCAR and DFAST processes include similar projections of pre-tax net income (called “Pre-Provision Net Revenue” or PPNR) which is then subject to stress testing, as illustrated in the following diagram 2 :
However, the capital action assumptions that are combined with these income projections to estimate a BHC’s post-stress capital levels and ratios can be different. For instance, under CCAR a BHC is allowed to include their planned capital actions in their calculation of post-stress capital levels and ratios. However, DFAST stress scenarios often assume that the BHC would not be able to either raise additional capital or would suspend dividends and any planned stock buy-backs.
Exemptions to CCAR and DFAST
The Fed coordinates these processes to reduce duplicative requirements and to minimize regulatory burden. The requirements, expectations, and activities relating to DFAST and CCAR do notapply to any banking organizations with assets of $10 billion or less. However, that does not suggest that smaller institutions do not need to conduct some type of stress testing. The Fed, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. (FDIC) each emphasize that all banking organizations, regardless of size, should have the capacity to analyze the potential impact of adverse outcomes on their financial condition.
