All banks passed CCAR this year. Any thoughts on the consulting business? Big 4? OW? MBB?

Tests are expected to get tougher year-over-year, to account for the impact of negative rates, etc. I expect there will continue to be a healthy pipeline of work around CCAR. I am expecting the republicans to start attacking the tests for effectively resulting in a tightening of monetary policy, which I think is valid. What if your sense of security came at the cost of economic growth?

CCAR results will only be released on June 29th. It was DFAST today.

More bad news. First interest rates stick, now this. Somethings needs to break, soon.

Banks passed DFAST not CCAR. There is a difference. In prior years people who passed DFAST still could be hit on CCAR for qualitative reasons.
