The Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (the Federal Reserve) this afternoon announced the results of the 2020 Dodd-Frank Act Stress Tests (DFAST) and Comprehensive Capital Analysis and Review (CCAR) for DB USA Corporation (DBUSA).

The Federal Reserve did not object to the DBUSA capital plan on a quantitative or qualitative basis.

On a quantitative basis, the Federal Reserve found that even in a severely adverse economic scenario, DBUSA’s Common Equity Tier 1 capital would comfortably exceed the regulatory minimum of 4.5% and would not fall below 18.4% at any time over the nine-quarter planning horizon. The Federal Reserve also found that DBUSA’s Tier 1 Leverage Ratio would remain well above the regulatory minimum of 4% and would not fall below 7.4%. All other minimum regulatory capital ratios were also exceeded.
