First, annualized growth has been less than 4.5 percent or negative during most (57 percent) quarters since quarterly reporting was adopted in 1991. Most importantly, as previously discussed, deposit growth could face downward pressure in the near-term based on economic conditions, as the consumption and investment patterns of individuals and households exhibit less precautionary behavior and as surge deposits are disbursed or leave the banking system, with growth rates normalizing over the next 8 years. For example, if insured deposits grow at an annual rate of approximately 3.3 percent over the next 8 years, reflecting the flow of surge deposits out of the banking system and a return to normal consumer behavior, then the long-term growth rate (including extraordinary growth during the first two quarters of 2020) would equal the long-term average rate of 4.5 percent that the fund has experienced since the 1990s. Under this scenario, the table above shows that losses would have to exceed $11.5 billion to prevent the reserve ratio from reaching 1.35 percent in 8 years. Due to the uncertainties discussed elsewhere, losses from bank failures remain difficult to project. However, the banking industry is well capitalized, the problem bank list remains low, and the banking industry has appeared resilient to the early stages of the economic effects of the pandemic. As the effect of the pandemic on the banking industry becomes more apparent, the FDIC will reassess its analysis of insured deposit growth, potential losses, and other factors that affect the reserve ratio. Semiannual Updates of Income and Loss Projections It is the FDIC’s view that frequent updates are necessary because loss and reserve ratio projections made so far into the future are subject to considerable uncertainty. Losses could VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:59 Sep 18, 2020 Jkt 250001 DIF Reserve ratio [percent] DIF Balance needed to reach 1.35 percent reserve ratio [billions of dollars] 1.56 1.50 1.44 1.39 1.33 differ from projected amounts if economic conditions worsen or financial stresses facing IDIs prove more or less severe. For example, DIF loss projections may increase if the quality of IDI assets quickly deteriorates or capital markets become severely constrained, and income could be affected by the factors described previously. Insured deposit growth could be higher or lower based on future economic conditions and the response of fiscal and monetary authorities and depositors. Future updates to the Board may result in changes in assumptions that result in different assessment revenue needs. Consequently, in order to fulfill the statutory requirement to return the fund reserve ratio to 1.35 percent, the FDIC may need to adopt higher assessment rates than those included in the current assessment rate schedule. Under assessment regulations, the Board has the authority to adjust assessment rates for all IDIs by up to two basis points, without notice and comment, if conditions warrant such an increase.13 Any increase greater than two basis points would require notice and comment. Given the considerable uncertainty of long-range projections and because the statutory deadline is 8 years away, the Restoration Plan maintains the current assessment rate schedule for all IDIs.
