REGULATORS CONTINUE REVIEWING NEW SYSTEM FOR EVALUATING INTEREST RATE RISK; NO CHANGES TO BANK DATA REQUIRED AT THIS TIME

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
PR-76-95 (12-12-95)
 

The three federal banking regulators announced today they are continuing to analyze a proposed new framework for measuring exposure to interest rate risk and, therefore, banks will not be required to supply additional information in this area for the first quarter of 1996.

The Federal Reserve Board, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency jointly published a proposed policy statement in August regarding a standard process for measuring and monitoring a bank's exposure to changes in interest rates. After considering the public comments received, the three agencies decided that further analysis of the proposal is necessary. This means there will be no additions to the interest rate risk portion of the quarterly Reports of Condition and Income (Call Reports) that banks will file as of March 31, 1996.
