An excerpt from "OCC Issues Guidance for Evaluating Capital Planning and Adequacy"

On June 7, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) issued guidance summarizing its expectations for national banks and savings associations (collectively, banks) regarding capital adequacy and capital planning. This guidance , set forth in OCC Bulletin 2012-16, also discusses the OCC’s processes for evaluating a bank’s capital planning and adequacy, and the various actions the OCC may take to ensure a bank’s capital planning process and capital level remain adequate for its complexity and overall risks. This bulletin also rescinds Office of Thrift Supervision CEO Memorandum 380, “Capital Management,” dated March 15, 2011.
