WASHINGTON (2/26/14)--March 20 is the day the Federal Reserve Board will release results from the latest supervisory stress tests conducted as part of the Dodd-Frank Act.
The Fed conducts the forward-looking exercises on large financial companies that it supervises. The exercises determine if financial institutions have sufficient capital to support operations and absorb losses during adverse economic conditions over nine quarters.
The Dodd-Frank Act supervisory stress test results include data such as post-stress capital ratios, revenue and loss estimates under the Federal Reserve's hypothetical adverse and severely adverse scenarios.
Related results from the Comprehensive Capital Analysis and Review will be released March 26.
