This report collects information, by country, from U.S. branches and agencies of foreign banks on direct, indirect, and total adjusted claims on foreign residents. The report also collects information about the respondents' direct claims on related non-U.S. offices domiciled in countries other than the home country of the parent bank that are ultimately guaranteed in the home country. A breakdown of adjusted claims on unrelated foreign residents provides exposure information.
Purpose: The Federal Reserve System, the FDIC, and the OCC use the data to monitor significant foreign country exposures of U.S. branches and agencies of foreign banks. Data are also used to evaluate the financial condition of these branches and agencies.
As a result of liquidity problems experienced by some U.S. branches and agencies of foreign banks, the report was implemented on June 30, 1986, to assist the agencies in carrying out their supervisory responsibilities under the International Banking Act of 1978.
The panel consists of branches and agencies of foreign banks domiciled in the United States with total direct claims on foreign residents in excess of $30 million. For purposes of this report, banks in Puerto Rico and U.S. territories and possessions are not considered foreign banks. Participation is required.
