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.
