NEW YORK, June 16 The Federal Reserve will give
banks more details on how it conducts annual stress tests,
including extra information on the qualitative part of the
tests, when it publishes the results later this month, Chair
Janet Yellen said in a letter to Blaine Luetkemeyer, chairman of
the subcommittee on Financial Institutions and Consumer Credit.
Yellen also said the Federal Reserve will give banks
specific examples from past years' problems with banks' capital
planning practices, she said in a letter dated June 16, a copy
of which was seen by Reuters.
Yellen said the Federal Reserve would commit to publishing
instructions for the stress tests at the same time as the
supervisory scenarios, by February 15.
