On February 9, 2016, the FDIC released the economic scenarios for use by certain covered financial institutions in the 2016 stress tests required under the Dodd-Frank Act. Generally, those financial institutions with total consolidated assets of more than $10 billion are required to conduct stress tests. The released scenarios include key variables that reflect economic activity, such as unemployment, exchange rates, prices, income, interest rates and other economic and financial factors. The FDIC coordinated with the Federal Reserve Board and the OCC, which released the scenarios in late January, in developing and distributing the scenarios.
