Required Stress Testing for Community Bank Commercial Loan Portfolios

With the combination of these three factors:

  • Greater than 1/3 of all banks in the country having commercial loan portfolios meet the 300% of capital threshold for non-owner occupied CRE or Ag, or the 100% of capital threshold for ADC loans and are considered by the Regulators to be concentrated,
  • The growing regulatory concern over total CRE exposures, and
  • The forecast for multiple interest rate increase over the next 12 months ...

Stress testing your portfolio is more important than ever. The presentation will focus on a cost effective way community banks can meet this requirement.

The regulatory guidance from both the FDIC (Supervisory Insights, Summer 2012) and the OCC (OCC Bulletin 2012 – 33) provides that migration analysis is an acceptable methodology for stress testing. The OCC has provided certain additional guidance for Banks to complete stress testing. The following excerpts from OCC 2012-33 are applicable to Community Banks. The guidance includes the following on the use of migration analysis for stress testing:

“Banks with an ability to perform migration analysis of credit risk ratings may be able to use that knowledge in evaluating changes in credit quality across different loan portfolios, because higher grade credits typically withstand market stresses better than lower grade credits.”

 

“Loan migration analysis can be used by banks with larger portfolios and more comprehensive internal databases to evaluate how a downward migration in internal loan ratings, consistent with migrations that might be expected during adverse economic conditions, would impact asset quality, earnings, and capital. This analysis would also assist banks in determining possible actions to address potential deterioration in their portfolios.”
