The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) today released a report providing the results of the annual stress tests that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac (the Enterprises) are required to conduct under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Dodd-Frank Act).
As amended, the Dodd-Frank Act requires certain financial institutions with more than $250 billion in assets that are regulated by a federal financial regulatory agency to conduct annual stress tests to determine whether they can absorb losses as a result of severely adverse economic conditions. The report, Dodd-Frank Act Stress Tests – Severely Adverse Scenario, provides updated information on possible ranges of future financial results of the Enterprises under severely adverse economic conditions.
