Final Stress Test Rule: Complete Coverage
During its monthly board meeting April 24, the NCUA board finalized a rule that requires credit unions with more than $10 billion in assets to submit to NCUA stress testing of its portfolio. The rule did not include a controversial provision that would have made the results public; however, the NCUA may reconsider that option when the rule is reviewed as part of the agency's rolling three-year rule review. Cost of the rule was also an issue. The rule is estimated to cost $1 million per covered institution in the first year, for a total of $5 million.
