Banks and Credit Unions are subject to programs of the Federal Reserve and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) that test whether they have sufficient capital to navigate through adverse future economic scenarios. This program will help attendees understand the CCAR (Federal Reserve) and DFAST (OCC) programs, and be aware of the kinds of challenges that can arise.

If your duties include, or are affected by, Risk management; financial planning (for example, concerning plans for payment of dividends); or compliance with the requirements of banking regulation and supervision, then you will benefit from the insights this program provides into the Capital Adequacy and Stress Testing rules and programs of the Federal Reserve and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC).        


The outcomes of the interaction between a bank or other financial institutions and Capital Adequacy and Stress Testing rules and programs have important practical consequences.  The regulatory authorities in certain cases can disallow an institution’s capital plan, which can result in (for example) restrictions on the payment of dividends.

In this webinar you will learn how Federal Reserve’s CCAR program (Comprehensive Capital Analysis and Review) and the OCC’s DFAST program (Dodd Frank Act Stress Test) work in practice; and become familiar with the main concepts and methods of Capital Adequacy and Stress Test processes.

In this training we will discuss real Capital Adequacy and Stress Test situations that have arisen; and the decisions that had to made concerning them; and how certain key difficulties were resolved.
