Podcast: CCAR 2020 During COVID-19: The Fed Should Stay the Course

Results of the Comprehensive Capital Analysis and Review (CCAR) are expected to be announced on June 25. SIFMA has repeatedly expressed concern regarding the CCAR approach to capital market products and those firm’s which are active participants. Following up on a pair of blogs published over the last two weeks, our latest podcast dives into the 2020 CCAR and additional considerations related to COVID-19.

Joe Seidel, Chief Operating Officer at SIFMA sat down with Coryann Stefansson, Managing Director and head of prudential capital and liquidity policy and Carter McDowell, Managing Director, Associate General Counsel, and head of prudential policy to discuss why there is no compelling case, particularly related to the capital markets, to step away from current validated methodologies for CCAR.
