Joint notice and request for comment.
In accordance with the requirements of the Paperwork Start Printed Page 52109Reduction Act (PRA) of 1995 (44 U.S.C. chapter 35), the OCC, the Board, and the FDIC (the agencies) may not conduct or sponsor, and the respondent is not required to respond to, an information collection unless it displays a currently valid Office of Management and Budget (OMB) control number. The agencies, under the auspices of the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC), have approved the publication for public comment of the proposed Market Risk Regulatory Report for Institutions Subject to the Market Risk Capital Rule (FFIEC 102). The proposed reporting requirements reflect the revised regulatory capital rules adopted by the agencies in July 2013 (revised regulatory capital rules) and would collect key information from respondents on how they measure and calculate market risk under the agencies' revised regulatory capital rules. The proposed FFIEC 102 reporting requirements would take effect as of March 31, 2015, for institutions subject to the market risk capital rule as incorporated into Subpart F of the revised regulatory capital rules (market risk capital rule).

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). All data reported in the FFIEC 102 would be available to the public.
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.
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. 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  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)  or the Consolidated Financial Statements for Holding Companies (FR Y-9C), 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.
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 Start Printed Page 52111market 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  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 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, 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:
(a) Whether the collections of information that are the subject of this notice are necessary for the proper performance of the agencies' functions, including whether the information has practical utility;
(b) The accuracy of the agencies' estimates of the burden of the information collections as they are proposed to be revised, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used;
(c) Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected;
(d) Ways to minimize the burden of information collections on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology; and
(e) Estimates of capital or start-up costs and costs of operation, maintenance, and purchase of services to provide the information.
Comments submitted in response to this joint notice will be shared among the agencies. All comments will become a matter of public record.Start Signature
