General Description of Reports

    The Country Exposure Report (FFIEC 009) is filed quarterly with the 
agencies and provides information on international claims of U.S. 
banks, savings associations, bank holding companies, savings and loan 
holding companies, and intermediate holding companies (U.S. banking 
organizations) that is used for supervisory and analytical purposes. 
The information is used to monitor the foreign country exposures of 
reporting institutions to determine the degree of risk in their 
portfolios and assess the potential risk of loss. The Country Exposure 
Information Report (FFIEC 009a) is a supplement to the FFIEC 009 and 
provides publicly available information on material foreign country 
exposures (all exposures to a country in excess of 1 percent of total 
assets or 20 percent of capital, whichever is less) of U.S. banking 
organizations that file the FFIEC 009 report. As part of the Country 
Exposure Information Report, reporting institutions also must furnish a 
list of countries in which they have lending exposures above 0.75 
percent of total assets or 15 percent of total capital, whichever is 
less.
