SNL Financial Analyzes Just-Released Big Bank Stress Test Results
Charlottesville, VA, Mar 10, 2013 (PRWeb.com via COMTEX) --
SNL FINANCIAL REPORT: STRESS TESTS ULTIMATELY CAUSE FOR LITTLE STRESS
The Dodd-Frank stress-test results concluded that the industry's largest players in general would perform well should the U.S. economy tumble into another severe recession. Ally Financial was the lone exception, "failing" the stress test after its Tier 1 common ratio fell to 1.5%, well below the minimum requirement of 5%.
Altogether the 18 bank holding companies included in the test were projected to post cumulative net losses of $194.1 billion over the 9 quarter period in the severely stressed scenario.
