The OFR 2017 Financial Stability Report presents our annual assessment of U.S. financial stability. In Chapter 1, we highlight three potential threats to stability: vulnerability to cybersecurity incidents, resolution risks at systemically important financial institutions, and evolving market structure. In Chapter 2, we discuss our overall assessment of financial stability. We look at six categories of risk. We conclude financial stability risks remain in a medium range overall, although market risks are elevated. This report supplements our 2017 Annual Report to Congress.

The OFR 2016 Financial Stability Report contains our in-depth analysis of U.S. financial stability risks. The first chapter frames our analysis in five risk categories that we monitor regularly. The second chapter takes a deeper look at seven key threats. Four themes stand out: the potential for disruptions in the global economy to affect U.S. financial stability, risk-taking amid low long-term interest rates, risks facing U.S. financial institutions, and challenges to improving financial data. Overall, financial stability risks remain in a medium range. This report supplements our 2016 Annual Report to Congress.
