General description of report:

The FR Y-9C consists of standardized financial statements similar to the Call Reports filed by commercial banks.[1] The FR Y-9C collects consolidated data from HCs and is filed quarterly by top-tier HCs with total consolidated assets of $3 billion or more.[2]

The FR Y-9LP, which collects parent company only financial data, must be submitted by each HC that files the FR Y-9C, as well as by each of its subsidiary HCs.[3] The report consists of standardized financial statements.

The FR Y-9SP is a parent company only financial statement filed Start Printed Page 50842semiannually by HCs with total consolidated assets of less than $3 billion. In a banking organization with total consolidated assets of less than $3 billion that has tiered HCs, each HC in the organization must submit, or have the top-tier HC submit on its behalf, a separate FR Y-9SP. This report is designed to obtain basic balance sheet and income data for the parent company, as well as data on its intangible assets and intercompany transactions.

The FR Y-9ES is filed annually by each employee stock ownership plan (ESOP) that is also an HC. The report collects financial data on the ESOP's benefit plan activities. The FR Y-9ES consists of four schedules: A Statement of Changes in Net Assets Available for Benefits, a Statement of Net Assets Available for Benefits, Memoranda, and Notes to the Financial Statements.

The FR Y-9CS is a free-form supplemental report that the Board may utilize to collect critical additional data deemed to be needed in an expedited manner from HCs. The data are used to assess and monitor emerging issues related to HCs, and the report is intended to supplement the other FR Y-9 reports. The data items included on the FR Y-9CS may change as needed.

Proposed revisions:

FR Y-9C Revisions

The Board has determined it no longer needs certain FR Y-9C items from financial institutions with less than $5 billion in total assets. The Board proposes to reduce burden on these financial institutions by adding new and revised reporting thresholds, reducing the reporting frequency for certain items and schedules from quarterly to semiannually or annually, and combining certain items. These revisions would be consistent with recent and proposed reporting changes to the Call Report. The proposed revisions are as follows:

Recordkeeping Requirements

The instructions to the FR Y-9C, FR Y-9LP, FR Y-9SP, and FR Y-9ES state that respondents must maintain in their files a manually signed and attested printed copy of the data submitted on the form, and should retain workpapers and other records used in the preparation of those reports. The Board is proposing to revise the FR Y-9 information collection to account for these recordkeeping provisions, which are not currently accounted for.

Legal authorization and confidentiality: The Board has the authority to impose the reporting and recordkeeping requirements associated with the Y-9 family of reports on bank holding companies (“BHCs”) pursuant Start Printed Page 50844to section 5 of the Bank Holding Company Act (“BHC Act”), (12 U.S.C. 1844); on savings and loan holding companies pursuant to section 10(b)(2) and (3) of the Home Owners' Loan Act, (12 U.S.C. 1467a(b)(2) and (3)), as amended by sections 369(8) and 604(h)(2) of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street and Consumer Protection Act (“Dodd-Frank Act”); on U.S. intermediate holding companies (“U.S. IHCs”) pursuant to section 5 of the BHC Act, (12 U.S.C 1844), as well as pursuant to sections 102(a)(1) and 165 of the Dodd-Frank Act, (12 U.S.C. 511(a)(1) and 5365)[11] ; and on securities holding companies pursuant to section 618 of the Dodd-Frank Act, (12 U.S.C. 1850a(c)(1)(A)). The obligation to submit the FR Y-9 series of reports, and the recordkeeping requirements set forth in the respective instructions to each report, are mandatory.

With respect to the FR Y-9C report, Schedule HI's item 7(g) “FDIC deposit insurance assessments,” Schedule HC-P's item 7(a) “Representation and warranty reserves for 1-4 family residential mortgage loans sold to U.S. government agencies and government sponsored agencies,” and Schedule HC-P's item 7(b) “Representation and warranty reserves for 1-4 family residential mortgage loans sold to other parties” are considered confidential commercial and financial information. Such treatment may be appropriate under exemption 4 of the Freedom of Information Act (“FOIA”), (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4)), because these data items reflect commercial and financial information that is both customarily and actually treated as private by the submitter, and which the Board has previously assured submitters will be treated as confidential. It also appears that disclosing these data items may reveal confidential examination and supervisory information, and in such instances, this information may also be withheld pursuant to exemption 8 of the FOIA, (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(8)), which protects information related to the supervision or examination of a regulated financial institution.

In addition, for both the FR Y-9C report and the FR Y-9SP report, Schedule HC's memorandum item 2.b., the name and email address of the external auditing firm's engagement partner, is considered confidential commercial information and protected by exemption 4 of the FOIA, (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4)), if the identity of the engagement partner is treated as private information by HCs. The Board has assured respondents that this information will be treated as confidential since the collection of this data item was proposed in 2004.

Aside from the data items described above, the remaining data items on the FR Y-9C report and the FR Y-9SP report are generally not accorded confidential treatment. The data items collected on FR Y-9LP, FR Y-9ES, and FR Y-9CS[12] reports, are also generally not accorded confidential treatment. As provided in the Board's Rules Regarding Availability of Information (12 CFR part 261), however, a respondent may request confidential treatment for any data items the respondent believes should be withheld pursuant to a FOIA exemption. The Board will review any such request to determine if confidential treatment is appropriate, and will inform the respondent if the request for confidential treatment has been denied.

To the extent the instructions to the FR Y-9C, FR Y-9LP, FR Y-9SP, and FR Y-9ES reports each respectively direct the financial institution to retain the workpapers and related materials used in preparation of each report, such material would only be obtained by the Board as part of the examination or supervision of the financial institution. Accordingly, such information may be considered confidential pursuant to exemption 8 of the FOIA. (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(8)). In addition, the workpapers and related materials may also be protected by exemption 4 of the FOIA, to the extent such financial information is treated as confidential by the respondent. (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4)).

Consultation outside the agency: The Board consulted with the FDIC and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency in regard to these proposed revisions.

6.  Currently, this item must be completed by holding companies with total assets of $1 billion or more, or with $2 billion or more in par/notional amounts of off-balance-sheet derivative contracts. The Board proposes to increase the reporting threshold from $1 billion to $5 billion or more in total assets.

7.  In June 2016, the Financial Accounting Standard Board (FASB) issued Accounting Standard Update 2016-13 (ASU 2016-13), which introduced the current expected credit loss methodology for estimating allowances for credit losses. In response to ASU 2016-13, the Board added Schedule HI-C Part II, Disaggregated Data on Allowances for Credit Losses, to capture disaggregated data on allowances for credit losses and held-to-maturity securities from HCs that have adopted ASU 2016-13, effective, March 31, 2019. See 83 FR 63870 (December 12, 2018). The Board is proposing to add a semiannual reporting frequency for Schedule HI-C, Part II for HCs with less than $5 billion in total assets. For HCs with less than $5 billion in total assets that have not adopted ASU 2016-13, the Board proposes to collect the recorded investment instead of the amortized cost and collect the allowance balance on loans and leases held for investment, on Schedule HI-C Part II data items 1-6, on a semiannual basis. HCs with less than $5 billion in total assets that have adopted ASU 2016-13, should report the amortized cost and allowance balance for credit losses on held-to-maturity securities on Schedule HI-C, Part II data items 1-6 and the allowance balance on held-to-maturity securities on data items 7-11, semi-annually. The proposed changes become effective September 2019, and are reportable starting in December 2019. The Board believes that semi-annual information on the composition of the allowance for credit losses in relation to the amortized cost for each loan category, and disaggregated information on HTM securities allowances, is sufficient to support the Board's analysis of the allowance and credit risk management. The data on allowance allocations by loan category, when reviewed in conjunction with the past due and nonaccrual data reported by loan category in Schedule HC-N, which will continue to be reported on a quarterly basis, assist the staff in assessing a HC's credit risk exposures and evaluating the appropriateness of the overall level of its Allowance for Loan and Lease Losses and its allocations by loan category. If changes in the quarterly past due and nonaccrual data by loan category at individual HCs in quarters when the disaggregated allowance data would not be reported in the FR Y-9C raise questions about the composition of the allowance, supervisory follow-up can be undertaken on a case-by-case basis.

Back to Citation

8.  In these items, HCs currently report detailed information about the risk-weighting of various types of assets and other exposures under the Federal Reserve's' regulatory capital rules. HCs still would need to calculate risk-weighted assets, maintain appropriate documentation for this calculation, and report items 26 through 31 of Part II, if applicable, on a quarterly basis. The Federal Reserve does not believe it is necessary for HCs to continue to provide the details of their risk-weighting allocations and calculations in Schedule HC-R, Part II, on a quarterly basis as the Federal Reserve can adequately review regulatory capital calculations for the first and third calendar quarters as part of on-site examinations or through other types of periodic monitoring, as necessary.

Back to Citation

9.  HCs currently report detailed information in these items about derivative exposures that are elements of the risk-weighting process for these exposures. The Board does not believe it is necessary for a HC with less than $5 billion in total assets to continue to report these amounts on a quarterly basis. Generally, HCs with less than $5 billion in total assets do not have a significant amount of derivatives contracts, and the Board can review information about HCs' risk-weighting calculations for derivative exposures for the first and third calendar quarters, as necessary, as part of on-site examinations or through other periodic monitoring.

Back to Citation

10.  HCs with less than $5 billion in total assets would report only the newly combined data items. HCs with $5 billion or more in total assets would continue to report only the currently existing data items.

Back to Citation

11.  Section 165(b)(2) of Title I of the Dodd-Frank Act, (12 U.S.C. 5365(b)(2)), refers to “foreign-based bank holding company.” Section 102(a)(1) of the Dodd-Frank Act, (12 U.S.C. 5311(a)(1)), defines “bank holding company” for purposes of Title I of the Dodd-Frank Act to include foreign banking organizations that are treated as bank holding companies under section 8(a) of the International Banking Act, (12 U.S.C. 3106(a)). The Board has required, pursuant to section 165(b)(1)(B)(iv) of the Dodd-Frank Act, (12 U.S.C. 5365(b)(1)(B)(iv)), certain foreign banking organizations subject to section 165 of the Dodd-Frank Act to form U.S. intermediate holding companies. Accordingly, the parent foreign-based organization of a U.S. IHC is treated as a BHC for purposes of the BHC Act and section 165 of the Dodd-Frank Act. Because Section 5(c) of the BHC Act authorizes the Board to require reports from subsidiaries of BHCs, section 5(c) provides additional authority to require U.S. IHCs to report the information contained in the FR Y-9 series of reports.

Back to Citation

12.  The FR Y-9CS is a supplemental report that may be utilized by the Board to collect additional information that is needed in an expedited manner from HCs. The information collected on this supplemental report is subject to change as needed. Generally, the FR Y-9CS report is treated as public. However, where appropriate, data items on the FR Y-9CS report may be withheld under exemptions 4 and/or 8 of the Freedom of Information Act, (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4) and (8)).
