14:32 EDTJPM, WFC, MS, C, USB, BAC, GSOCC sees signs of credit risk building in banking system
While conditions overall showed improvement in the second half of 2013, the OCC reports in its Spring 2014 Semiannual Risk Perspective that credit risk is building in supervised national banks and federal savings associations following a period of improving credit quality and problem loan clean-up. In the report the OCC stated: "The OCC sees signs that credit risk is now building after a period of improving credit quality and problem loan clean-up. Examiners have observed erosion in the underwriting standards for syndicated leveraged loans, as well as loosening of standards and increased layering of risk in the indirect auto market. Recent examinations of commercial loan portfolios have identified an increase in policy and underwriting exceptions, including some examples of risk layering, e.g., increasing collateral advance rates, waiving or loosening of guarantees, and more liberal repayment terms such as extended periods of interest-only payments." Publicly traded companies in the space include Bank of America (BAC), Citigroup (C), Goldman Sachs (GS), JPMorgan (JPM), Morgan Stanley (MS), U.S. Bancorp (USB) and Wells Fargo (WFC). Reference Link
