Federal Banking Agencies Issue Guidance on Management of Counterparty Credit Risk


On July 5, the federal banking agencies jointly issued guidance on the effective management of counterparty credit risk (CCR). CCR is the risk that the counterparty to a transaction defaults or deteriorates in creditworthiness before the final settlement of the transaction. The guidance, issued by the Federal Reserve Board, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, and the Office of Thrift Supervision, builds on existing supervisory guidance and outlines effective industry practices for CCR management. CCR management guidelines and supervisory expectations are delineated in various individual and interagency policy statements and guidance, which remain relevant and applicable. This guidance offers further explanation and clarification, particularly in light of developments in CCR management. However, this guidance is not all-inclusive, and banking organizations should reference sound practices for CCR management, such as those advanced by industry, policymaking and supervisory forums.
