General Description of Report

This quarterly information collection is 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 agencies' regulatory capital rules (market risk institutions).[1] All data reported in the FFIEC 102 are available to the public. Each market risk institution is 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: (a) Permits 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) provides the most current statistical data available to identify areas of market risk on which to focus for onsite and offsite examinations; (c) allows 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) assists market risk institutions in validating their implementation of the market risk framework.

Current Actions

On July 5, 2016, the agencies published a notice in the Federal Register[2] and requested comment on a proposal to revise the FFIEC 102 effective December 31, 2016, to (1) have a market risk institution provide its Legal Entity Identifier (LEI) on the reporting form, only if the institution already has an LEI, and (2) add U.S. Intermediate Holding Companies to the Board's respondent panel. The comment Start Printed Page 70741period for this notice ended on September 6, 2016.
