Estimated Total Annual Burden: 48 burden hours to file. I. Summary: Risk-Based Capital Standards—The Market Risk Framework and Regulatory Reporting Requirements In July 2013, the agencies adopted amendments to their capital rules, including the market risk capital rule.2 The revised market risk capital rule takes effect on January 1, 2015, and contains requirements for the public disclosure of certain information at the consolidated banking organization level as well as certain additional regulatory reporting by insured depository institutions (IDIs), BHCs, and SLHCs (BHCs and SLHCs are collectively referred to as ‘‘holding companies’’ (HCs)). At present, those IDIs and HCs that are subject to the agencies’ current market risk capital rule 3 provide the amount of their market risk equivalent assets in reports, such as the Consolidated Reports of Condition and Income (Call Report) (FFIEC 031 or FFIEC 041) 4 or the Consolidated Financial Statements for Holding Companies (FR Y–9C),5 as applicable. The current regulatory reporting requirements reveal the end result of the market risk calculations but do not include the key components of the measurement of market risk. The agencies are proposing the expanded uniform regulatory reporting requirements described in this notice in order to assess the reasonableness and accuracy of a market risk institution’s calculation of its minimum capital requirements under the market risk capital rule and to evaluate a market risk institution’s capital in relation to its risks. Importantly, the FFIEC 102 would allow the agencies to better track growth in more credit-risk related, less liquid, and less actively traded products subject to the market risk rule. Historically, the risks of these products have been difficult to capture and measure. These reports should help the agencies in ensuring that these risks are adequately identified and their impact appropriately reflected in assessments General Description of Reports The information collections would be mandatory for market risk institutions, defined for this purpose as those institutions that are subject to the market risk capital rule as incorporated into Subpart F of the revised regulatory capital rules (market risk institutions).1 All data reported in the FFIEC 102 would be available to the public. Abstract Each market risk institution would be required to file the FFIEC 102 for the agencies’ use in assessing the reasonableness and accuracy of the institution’s calculation of its minimum capital requirements under the market risk capital rule and in evaluating the institution’s capital in relation to its risks. Additionally, the market risk information collected in the FFIEC 102 would: (a) Permit the agencies to monitor the market risk profile of and evaluate the impact and competitive implications of the market risk capital rule on individual market risk institutions and the industry as a whole; (b) provide the most current statistical data available to identify areas of market risk on which to focus for onsite and offsite examinations; (c) allow the agencies to assess and monitor the levels and components of each reporting institution’s risk-based capital requirements for market risk and the adequacy of the institution’s capital under the market risk capital rule; and (d) assist market risk institutions to implement and validate the market risk framework. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 1 See 12 CFR 3.201 (OCC); 12 CFR 217.201 (Board); and 12 CFR 324.201 (FDIC). The market risk capital rule generally applies to any banking institution with aggregate trading assets and trading liabilities equal to (a) 10 percent or more of quarterend total assets or (b) $1 billion or more. The statutory provisions that grant the agencies the authority to impose capital requirements are 12 U.S.C. 161 (national banks), 12 U.S.C. 324 (state member banks), 12 U.S.C. 1844(c) (bank holding companies (BHCs)), 12 U.S.C. 1467a(b) (savings and loan holding companies (SLHCs)), 12 U.S.C. 1817 (insured state nonmember commercial and savings banks), and 12 U.S.C. 1464 (savings associations). VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:57 Aug 29, 2014 Jkt 232001 2 The agencies approved and issued the revised regulatory capital rules in July 2013. The Board and the OCC published the revised regulatory capital rules in the Federal Register on October 11, 2013. See 78 FR 62018. The FDIC published a revised regulatory capital interim final rule and a final rule with no substantive changes in the Federal Register on September 10, 2013, and April 14, 2014, respectively. See 78 FR 55340 and 79 FR 20754. 3 See the agencies’ market risk capital rule at 12 CFR part 3, subpart F (OCC); 12 CFR parts 208 and 225, appendix E (Board); and 12 CFR part 325, appendix C (FDIC). 4 OMB Numbers: OCC, 1557–0081; Board, 7100– 0036; and FDIC, 3064–0052. 5 OMB Number: Board, 7100–0128.

In this regard, the reported data would improve the agencies’ ability to monitor the levels of, and trends in, the components that comprise the market risk measure under the market risk capital rule within and across market risk institutions. Such component reporting would allow supervisors to better understand on an ongoing basis model-implied diversification benefits for individual market risk institutions. The data would also enhance the agencies’ ability to perform institutionto-institution comparisons of the drivers underlying market risk institutions’ measures for market risk, identify potential outliers through market risk institution-to-peer comparisons, track these drivers over time relative to trends in other risk indicators at market risk institutions, and focus onsite examination efforts. II. Scope and Frequency of Regulatory Reporting The proposed FFIEC 102 regulatory reporting requirements would apply on a consolidated basis to each HC and each IDI that is required to calculate its risk-based capital using the market risk capital rule. Reporting HCs and IDIs would submit reports quarterly in line with efforts to monitor market risk institutions’ progress toward, and actions under, the market risk capital rule, which requires regular and consistent reports from all market risk institutions. The data would be collected on a quarterly basis as of the last calendar day of March, June, September, and December. The report due dates would coincide with the report due dates currently required of IDIs and HCs when filing their respective Call Reports or FR Y–9C reports, as applicable. Market risk institutions would begin reporting effective with the March 31, 2015, report date. III. Overview of the Proposed Information Collections The proposed FFIEC 102 shows the data elements within the market risk exposure class that would be reported under the market risk capital rule. The data submitted in the FFIEC 102 would be shared among the three agencies and made available to the public. The proposed FFIEC 102 is subdivided into several sections and memoranda. The sum of the data reported in each of the sections would be used to calculate a market risk institution’s risk-weighted assets (RWAs) for market risk. The first section contains data elements relating to a E:\FR\FM\02SEN1.SGM 02SEN1 mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 169 / Tuesday, September 2, 2014 / Notices market risk institution’s approved regulatory market risk models, including details of value-at-risk (VaR)based measures (as of the reporting date and averaged over 60 days). The second section is similar in structure to the first section except that it includes information on a market risk institution’s stressed VaR-based measures. The third section contains data elements relating to specific risk add-ons based on a market risk institution’s debt, equity and nonmodeled securitization positions. Securitization positions would be broken out for all market risk institutions and for advanced approaches institutions 6 that are also market risk institutions, resulting in the separate reporting of a standardized measure and an advanced measure for specific risk. The fourth section sets forth the data for the incremental risk capital requirement. The fifth section contains data on the comprehensive risk capital measurement including the specific risk add-ons for net long and net short correlation trading positions used in determining a market risk institution’s standardized comprehensive risk measure, and as applicable, its advanced comprehensive risk measure. The remaining section contains data elements for de minimis positions. Data elements from these sections combine to produce standardized market RWAs, and as applicable, advanced approaches market RWAs. The proposed reporting form also has a Memoranda section that is comprised of 22 line items. Because these line items do not directly contribute to the determination of market RWAs, they would be reported in the separate Memoranda section. The agencies believe that these items will provide additional insight into the risk profile of a market risk institution’s trading activity. For example, the first twelve lines of the Memoranda section will contribute to the agencies’ understanding of the degree to which diversification effects across the principal market risk drivers are material. In developing this proposal, the agencies considered several tradeoffs between the reporting burden on market risk institutions and the information needs of bank supervisors. One issue that the agencies identified was that market risk institutions have exposures in certain products that might fit into 6 Advanced approaches institutions are institutions subject to the advanced measurement approaches as incorporated into Subpart E of the revised regulatory capital rules. VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:24 Aug 29, 2014 Jkt 232001 more than one of the specified risk categories (e.g., interest rate, equity, foreign exchange, commodities, and credit). For example, convertible securities will mostly be subject to interest rate risk unless their value converges with that of the underlying equity. Similarly, foreign exchange swaps are primarily interest rate positions, but it is possible that a market risk institution might classify some as subject to foreign exchange risk. Accordingly, for purposes of reporting the VaR- or stressed VaR-based measures on the FFIEC 102, market risk institutions may classify their exposures in the same risk categories in which they are reported internally. Similarly, for purposes of reporting on the proposed FFIEC 102, the agencies have proposed to define diversification benefit as any adjustment to VaR- or stressed VaR-based measures that a market risk institution makes to reflect the absence of a perfect statistical correlation between the values of the underlying positions. The agencies also recognize that some market risk institutions may not adjust for diversification benefits in their VaR- or stressed VaR-based estimates, and in that case a market risk institution would not be required to estimate such benefits for purposes of reporting on the FFIEC 102. IV. Electronic Submission of Reports Consistent with the requirements for the agencies’ reports that collect data under the current regulatory capital reporting requirements,7 market risk institutions subject to the proposed reporting requirements would be required to submit the FFIEC 102 in an electronic format using file specifications and formats to be determined by the agencies. V. Request for Comment Public comment is requested on all aspects of this joint notice. In particular, do market risk institutions expect that making any specific line items on the proposed FFIEC 102 public would cause them competitive or other harm? If so, please identify the specific line items and describe in detail the nature of the harm. Additionally, comments are invited on: 7 Consolidated Reports of Condition and Income for a Bank with Domestic and Foreign Offices (FFIEC 031), Consolidated Reports of Condition and Income for a Bank with Domestic Offices Only (FFIEC 041), Consolidated Financial Statements for Holding Companies (FR Y–9C), and Regulatory Capital Reporting for Institutions Subject to the Advanced Capital Adequacy Framework (FFIEC 101) (OMB Numbers: OCC, 1557–0239; Board, 7100–0319; and FDIC, 3064–0159).

General Description of Reports

    The information collections would be mandatory for market risk 
institutions, defined for this purpose as those institutions that are 
subject to the market risk capital rule as incorporated into Subpart F 
of the revised regulatory capital rules (market risk institutions).\1\ 
All data reported in the FFIEC 102 would be available to the public.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ See 12 CFR 3.201 (OCC); 12 CFR 217.201 (Board); and 12 CFR 
324.201 (FDIC). The market risk capital rule generally applies to 
any banking institution with aggregate trading assets and trading 
liabilities equal to (a) 10 percent or more of quarter-end total 
assets or (b) $1 billion or more. The statutory provisions that 
grant the agencies the authority to impose capital requirements are 
12 U.S.C. 161 (national banks), 12 U.S.C. 324 (state member banks), 
12 U.S.C. 1844(c) (bank holding companies (BHCs)), 12 U.S.C. 
1467a(b) (savings and loan holding companies (SLHCs)), 12 U.S.C. 
1817 (insured state nonmember commercial and savings banks), and 12 
U.S.C. 1464 (savings associations).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Abstract

    Each market risk institution would be required to file the FFIEC 
102 for the agencies' use in assessing the reasonableness and accuracy 
of the institution's calculation of its minimum capital requirements 
under the market risk capital rule and in evaluating the institution's 
capital in relation to its risks. Additionally, the market risk 
information collected in the FFIEC 102 would: (a) Permit the agencies 
to monitor the market risk profile of and evaluate the impact and 
competitive implications of the market risk capital rule on individual 
market risk institutions and the industry as a whole; (b) provide the 
most current statistical data available to identify areas of market 
risk on which to focus for onsite and offsite examinations; (c) allow 
the agencies to assess and monitor the levels and components of each 
reporting institution's risk-based capital requirements for market risk 
and the adequacy of the institution's capital under the market risk 
capital rule; and (d) assist market risk institutions to implement and 
validate the market risk framework.

Current Actions

I. Summary: Risk-Based Capital Standards--The Market Risk Framework and 
Regulatory Reporting Requirements

    In July 2013, the agencies adopted amendments to their capital 
rules, including the market risk capital rule.\2\ The revised market 
risk capital rule takes effect on January 1, 2015, and contains 
requirements for the public disclosure of certain information at the 
consolidated banking organization level as well as certain additional 
regulatory reporting by insured depository institutions (IDIs), BHCs, 
and SLHCs (BHCs and SLHCs are collectively referred to as ``holding 
companies'' (HCs)).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ The agencies approved and issued the revised regulatory 
capital rules in July 2013. The Board and the OCC published the 
revised regulatory capital rules in the Federal Register on October 
11, 2013. See 78 FR 62018. The FDIC published a revised regulatory 
capital interim final rule and a final rule with no substantive 
changes in the Federal Register on September 10, 2013, and April 14, 
2014, respectively. See 78 FR 55340 and 79 FR 20754.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    At present, those IDIs and HCs that are subject to the agencies' 
current market risk capital rule \3\ provide the amount of their market 
risk equivalent assets in reports, such as the Consolidated Reports of 
Condition and Income (Call Report) (FFIEC 031 or FFIEC 041) \4\ or the 
Consolidated Financial Statements for Holding Companies (FR Y-9C),\5\ 
as applicable. The current regulatory reporting requirements reveal the 
end result of the market risk calculations but do not include the key 
components of the measurement of market risk. The agencies are 
proposing the expanded uniform regulatory reporting requirements 
described in this notice in order to assess the reasonableness and 
accuracy of a market risk institution's calculation of its minimum 
capital requirements under the market risk capital rule and to evaluate 
a market risk institution's capital in relation to its risks. 
Importantly, the FFIEC 102 would allow the agencies to better track 
growth in more credit-risk related, less liquid, and less actively 
traded products subject to the market risk rule. Historically, the 
risks of these products have been difficult to capture and measure. 
These reports should help the agencies in ensuring that these risks are 
adequately identified and their impact appropriately reflected in 
assessments of the safety and soundness of market risk institutions.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ See the agencies' market risk capital rule at 12 CFR part 3, 
subpart F (OCC); 12 CFR parts 208 and 225, appendix E (Board); and 
12 CFR part 325, appendix C (FDIC).
    \4\ OMB Numbers: OCC, 1557-0081; Board, 7100-0036; and FDIC, 
3064-0052.
    \5\ OMB Number: Board, 7100-0128.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In this regard, the reported data would improve the agencies' 
ability to monitor the levels of, and trends in, the components that 
comprise the market risk measure under the market risk capital rule 
within and across market risk institutions. Such component reporting 
would allow supervisors to better understand on an ongoing basis model-
implied diversification benefits for individual market risk 
institutions. The data would also enhance the agencies' ability to 
perform institution-to-institution comparisons of the drivers 
underlying market risk institutions' measures for market risk, identify 
potential outliers through market risk institution-to-peer comparisons, 
track these drivers over time relative to trends in other risk 
indicators at market risk institutions, and focus onsite examination 
efforts.

II. Scope and Frequency of Regulatory Reporting

    The proposed FFIEC 102 regulatory reporting requirements would 
apply on a consolidated basis to each HC and each IDI that is required 
to calculate its risk-based capital using the market risk capital rule. 
Reporting HCs and IDIs would submit reports quarterly in line with 
efforts to monitor market risk institutions' progress toward, and 
actions under, the market risk capital rule, which requires regular and 
consistent reports from all market risk institutions.
    The data would be collected on a quarterly basis as of the last 
calendar day of March, June, September, and December. The report due 
dates would coincide with the report due dates currently required of 
IDIs and HCs when filing their respective Call Reports or FR Y-9C 
reports, as applicable. Market risk institutions would begin reporting 
effective with the March 31, 2015, report date.

III. Overview of the Proposed Information Collections

    The proposed FFIEC 102 shows the data elements within the market 
risk exposure class that would be reported under the market risk 
capital rule. The data submitted in the FFIEC 102 would be shared among 
the three agencies and made available to the public.
    The proposed FFIEC 102 is subdivided into several sections and 
memoranda. The sum of the data reported in each of the sections would 
be used to calculate a market risk institution's risk-weighted assets 
(RWAs) for market risk. The first section contains data elements 
relating to a

[[Page 52111]]

market risk institution's approved regulatory market risk models, 
including details of value-at-risk (VaR)-based measures (as of the 
reporting date and averaged over 60 days). The second section is 
similar in structure to the first section except that it includes 
information on a market risk institution's stressed VaR-based measures. 
The third section contains data elements relating to specific risk add-
ons based on a market risk institution's debt, equity and non-modeled 
securitization positions. Securitization positions would be broken out 
for all market risk institutions and for advanced approaches 
institutions \6\ that are also market risk institutions, resulting in 
the separate reporting of a standardized measure and an advanced 
measure for specific risk. The fourth section sets forth the data for 
the incremental risk capital requirement. The fifth section contains 
data on the comprehensive risk capital measurement including the 
specific risk add-ons for net long and net short correlation trading 
positions used in determining a market risk institution's standardized 
comprehensive risk measure, and as applicable, its advanced 
comprehensive risk measure. The remaining section contains data 
elements for de minimis positions. Data elements from these sections 
combine to produce standardized market RWAs, and as applicable, 
advanced approaches market RWAs.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ Advanced approaches institutions are institutions subject to 
the advanced measurement approaches as incorporated into Subpart E 
of the revised regulatory capital rules.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The proposed reporting form also has a Memoranda section that is 
comprised of 22 line items. Because these line items do not directly 
contribute to the determination of market RWAs, they would be reported 
in the separate Memoranda section. The agencies believe that these 
items will provide additional insight into the risk profile of a market 
risk institution's trading activity. For example, the first twelve 
lines of the Memoranda section will contribute to the agencies' 
understanding of the degree to which diversification effects across the 
principal market risk drivers are material.
    In developing this proposal, the agencies considered several 
tradeoffs between the reporting burden on market risk institutions and 
the information needs of bank supervisors. One issue that the agencies 
identified was that market risk institutions have exposures in certain 
products that might fit into more than one of the specified risk 
categories (e.g., interest rate, equity, foreign exchange, commodities, 
and credit). For example, convertible securities will mostly be subject 
to interest rate risk unless their value converges with that of the 
underlying equity. Similarly, foreign exchange swaps are primarily 
interest rate positions, but it is possible that a market risk 
institution might classify some as subject to foreign exchange risk. 
Accordingly, for purposes of reporting the VaR- or stressed VaR-based 
measures on the FFIEC 102, market risk institutions may classify their 
exposures in the same risk categories in which they are reported 
internally. Similarly, for purposes of reporting on the proposed FFIEC 
102, the agencies have proposed to define diversification benefit as 
any adjustment to VaR- or stressed VaR-based measures that a market 
risk institution makes to reflect the absence of a perfect statistical 
correlation between the values of the underlying positions. The 
agencies also recognize that some market risk institutions may not 
adjust for diversification benefits in their VaR- or stressed VaR-based 
estimates, and in that case a market risk institution would not be 
required to estimate such benefits for purposes of reporting on the 
FFIEC 102.

IV. Electronic Submission of Reports

    Consistent with the requirements for the agencies' reports that 
collect data under the current regulatory capital reporting 
requirements,\7\ market risk institutions subject to the proposed 
reporting requirements would be required to submit the FFIEC 102 in an 
electronic format using file specifications and formats to be 
determined by the agencies.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ Consolidated Reports of Condition and Income for a Bank with 
Domestic and Foreign Offices (FFIEC 031), Consolidated Reports of 
Condition and Income for a Bank with Domestic Offices Only (FFIEC 
041), Consolidated Financial Statements for Holding Companies (FR Y-
9C), and Regulatory Capital Reporting for Institutions Subject to 
the Advanced Capital Adequacy Framework (FFIEC 101) (OMB Numbers: 
OCC, 1557-0239; Board, 7100-0319; and FDIC, 3064-0159).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

V. Request for Comment

    Public comment is requested on all aspects of this joint notice. In 
particular, do market risk institutions expect that making any specific
