General Description of Report: The FR 2314 family of reports is the only source of comprehensive and systematic data on the assets, liabilities, and earnings of the foreign nonbank subsidiaries of U.S. banking organizations, and the data are used to monitor the growth, profitability, and activities of these foreign companies. The data help the Federal Reserve identify present and potential problems of these companies, monitor their activities in specific countries, and develop a better understanding of activities within the industry and within specific institutions.

General Description of Report: The FR Y–7N and the FR Y–7NS are used to assess an FBO’s ability to be a continuing source of strength to its U.S. operations and to determine compliance with U.S. laws and regulations. FBOs file the FR Y–7N quarterly or annually or the FR Y–7NS annually predominantly based on asset size thresholds. The FR Y–7Q is used to assess consolidated regulatory capital and asset information from all FBOs. The FR Y–7Q is filed quarterly by FBOs that have effectively elected to become or be treated as a U.S. financial holding company (FHC) and by FBOs that have total consolidated assets of $50 billion or more, regardless of FHC status.

Section 2A of the Federal Reserve Act (FRA) requires that the Board and the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) maintain long-run growth of the monetary and credit aggregates commensurate with the economy’s long run potential to increase production, so as to promote effectively the goals of maximum employment, stable prices, and moderate long-term interest rates (12 U.S.C. 225a). In addition, under section 12A of the FRA, the FOMC is required to implement regulations relating to the open market operations conducted by Federal Reserve Banks. Those transactions must be governed with a view to accommodating commerce and business and with regard to their bearing upon the general credit situation of the country (12 U.S.C. 263). The Board and the FOMC use the information obtained from the FR 2023 to help fulfill these obligations. The questions asked on each survey will vary, so the ability of the Board to maintain the confidentiality of information collected must be determined on a case by case basis. It is likely that much of the information collected would constitute confidential financial information obtained from a person and would thus be protected from disclosure under exemption 4 to the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4)).

Years, With, of the Following Reports:

of U.S. Holding Companies and the Abbreviated Financial Statements of 
U.S. Nonbank Subsidiaries of U.S. Holding Companies.

holding companies (SLHCs), securities holding companies, and 
intermediate holding companies (IHCs) (collectively, ``holding 
companies'').
    Estimated annual reporting hours: FR Y-11 (quarterly): 12,539; FR 
Y-11 (annual): 1,299; FR Y-11S: 287.

of domestic holding companies, which is essential for monitoring the 
subsidiaries' potential impact on the condition of the holding company 
or its subsidiary banks. Holding companies file the FR Y-11 on a 
quarterly or annual basis or the FR Y-11S on an annual basis, 
predominantly based on whether the organization meets certain asset 
size thresholds.
    Legal authorization and confidentiality: The Board has the 
authority to require BHCs and any subsidiary thereof, SLHCs and any 
subsidiary thereof, and securities holding companies and any affiliate 
thereof to file the FR Y-11 pursuant to, respectively, section 5(c) of 
the Bank Holding Company Act (BHC Act) (12 U.S.C. 1844(c)), section 
10(b) of the Homeowners' Loan Act (12 U.S.C. 1467a(b)), and section 618 
of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Dodd-

organizations (FBOs) and their subsidiary IHCs, section 5(c) of the BHC 
Act, in conjunction with section 8 of the International Banking Act (12 
U.S.C. 3106), authorizes the board to require FBOs and any subsidiary 
thereof to file the FR Y-11 reports. These reports are mandatory.
    Information collected in these reports generally is not considered 
confidential. However, because the information is collected as part of 
the Board's

supervisory process, certain information may be afforded confidential 
treatment pursuant to exemption 8 of the Freedom of Information Act 
(FOIA) (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(8)). Individual respondents may request that 
certain data be afforded confidential treatment pursuant to exemption 4

competitive position of the respondent (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4)). 
Additionally, individual respondents may request that personally 
identifiable information be afforded confidential treatment pursuant to 
exemption 6 of the FOIA if the release of the information would 
constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy (5 U.S.C. 
552(b)(6)). The applicability of FOIA exemptions 4 and 6 would be 
determined on a case-by-case basis.

a better understanding of activities within the industry and within 
specific institutions. Parent organizations (SMBs, Edge and agreement 
corporations, or holding companies) file the FR 2314 on a quarterly or 
annual basis, or the FR 2314S on an annual basis, predominantly based 
on whether the organization meets certain asset size thresholds.
    Legal authorization and confidentiality: The Board has the 
authority to require BHCs and any subsidiary thereof, SLHCs and any 
subsidiary thereof, and securities holding companies and any affiliate 
thereof to file the FR 2314 pursuant to, respectively, section 5(c) of 
the BHC Act (12 U.S.C. 1844(c)), section 10(b) of the Homeowners' Loan 
Act (12 U.S.C. 1467a(b)), and section 618 of the Dodd-Frank Act (12 
U.S.C. 1850a). The Board has the authority to require SMBs, agreement 
corporations, and Edge corporations to file the FR 2314 pursuant to, 
respectively, sections 9(6), 25(7), and 25A(17) of the Federal Reserve 
Act (12 U.S.C. 324, 602, and 625). With respect to FBOs and their 
subsidiary IHCs, section 5(c) of the BHC Act, in conjunction with 
section 8 of the International Banking Act (12 U.S.C. 3106), authorizes 
the board to require FBOs and any subsidiary thereof to file the FR 
2314 reports. These reports are mandatory. Information collected in 
these reports generally is not considered confidential. However, 
because the information is collected as part of the Board's supervisory 
process, certain information may be afforded confidential treatment 
pursuant to exemption 8 of the FOIA (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(8)). Individual 
respondents may request that certain data be afforded confidential 
treatment pursuant to exemption 4 of the FOIA if the data has not 
previously been publically disclosed and the release of the data would 
likely cause substantial harm to the competitive position of the 
respondent (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4)). Additionally, individual respondents 
may request that personally identifiable information be afforded 
confidential treatment pursuant to exemption 6 of the FOIA if the 
release of the information would constitute a clearly unwarranted 
invasion of personal privacy (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(6)). The applicability of 
FOIA exemptions 4 and 6 would be determined on a case-by-case basis.

    General Description of Report: The FR Y-7N and the FR Y-7NS are 
used to assess an FBO's ability to be a continuing source of strength 
to its U.S. operations and to determine compliance with U.S. laws and 
regulations. FBOs file the FR Y-7N quarterly or annually or the FR Y-
7NS annually predominantly based on asset size thresholds. The FR Y-7Q 
is used to assess consolidated regulatory capital and asset information 
from all FBOs. The FR Y-7Q is filed quarterly by FBOs that have 
effectively elected to become or be treated as a U.S. financial holding 
company (FHC) and by FBOs that have total consolidated assets of $50 
billion or more, regardless of FHC status. All other FBOs file the FR 
Y-7Q annually.
    Legal authorization and confidentiality: With respect to FBOs and 
their subsidiary IHCs, section 5(c) of the BHC Act, in conjunction with 
section 8 of the International Banking Act (12 U.S.C. 3106), authorizes 
the board to require FBOs and any subsidiary thereof to file the FR Y-
7N reports, and the FR Y-7Q.
    Information collected in these reports generally is not considered 
confidential. However, because the information is collected as part of 
the Board's supervisory process, certain information may be afforded 
confidential treatment pursuant to exemption 8 of FOIA (5 U.S.C. 
552(b)(8)). Individual respondents may request that certain data be 
afforded confidential treatment pursuant to exemption 4 of the FOIA if 
the data has not previously been publically disclosed and the release 
of the data would likely cause substantial harm to the competitive 
position of the respondent (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4)). Additionally, 
individual respondents may request that personally identifiable 
information be afforded confidential treatment pursuant to exemption 6 
of the FOIA if the release of the information would constitute a 
clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(6)). 
The applicability of FOIA exemptions 4 and 6 would be determined on a 
case-by-case basis.

on the extension, with revision, of these reports. The Board is 
adopting revisions to the FR Y-11, FR 2314, and FR Y-7N report forms 
and instructions that are consistent with certain recent changes to the 
FR Y-9 family of reports (OMB No. 7100-0128)\1\ and the Federal 
Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC) Consolidated Reports 
of Condition and Income (Call Reports) (FFIEC 031, 041, and 051; OMB 
No. 7100-0036).\2\ Specifically, the changes (1) add a new data item to 
the balance sheet to separate and reclassify equity securities with 
readily determinable fair values not held for trading from the 
``available for sale'' category in accordance with Financial Accounting 
Standards Board's (FASB) Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2016-01, 
``Recognition and Measurement of Financial Assets and Financial 
Liabilities;'' and (2) add new data items to the income statement to 
reflect the proper reporting of income associated with these 
securities. These revisions are effective for reports reflecting the 
June 30, 2018, report date. The comment period for this notice expired 
on July 2, 2018, and the Board did not receive any comments.
