BancWest Receives No Objection To Its 2017 Capital Plan And Releases Company-Run Dodd-Frank Act Stress Test Results
San Francisco, Calif. | Jun 28, 2017

BancWest today announced that the Federal Reserve Board has completed its review of BancWest's 2017 Comprehensive Capital Analysis and Review (CCAR) and did not object to the company's capital plan.

"We are pleased to receive the Federal Reserve Board" non-objection to our capital plan," said Nandita Bakhshi, CEO of BancWest, and President and CEO of Bank of the West. "These results demonstrate that BancWest is well prepared to withstand a severe financial shock, and that we are committed to our business, disciplined capital management, and maintaining a sound risk profile."

BancWest also announced that the results of its company-run 2017 Dodd-Frank Act Stress Test are available within the Regulatory Disclosure section of the BancWest website, and can be found here.

BancWest's plan included projected capital levels and financial results over a nine quarter forecast horizon, starting January 1, 2017. The results of the planning exercise show that BancWest's capital levels would remain above regulatory capital requirements and above the bank's own capital goals in all hypothetical stress scenarios that were part of the CCAR process.

The Federal Reserve has provided additional information on its website.
