DWS USA Corporation: Results of the Federal Reserve’s 2020 Dodd-Frank Act Stress Tests and Comprehensive Capital Analysis and Review

New York: The Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (the Federal Reserve) this afternoon announced the results of the 2020 Dodd-Frank Act Stress Tests (DFAST) and Comprehensive Capital Analysis and Review (CCAR) for DWS USA Corporation (DWS USA).

The Federal Reserve’s CCAR process is focused on assessing a firm’s capital planning processes and controls, risk management, and the ability to continue operations through periods of economic stress. Based on the CCAR assessment, the Federal Reserve had no objection to the proposed capital plan of DWS USA. DWS management is pleased with the assessment results, remains dedicated to meeting the expectations of Federal Reserve’s assessment, and is committed to maintaining a sound capital planning process. The DFAST results show DWS USA maintains minimum capital above each minimum regulatory capital ratio on a post-stress basis.
