In the "Interagency Advisory on Interest Rate Risk Management Frequently Asked Questions", published in January 2012, the OCC reminded banks of the need for sound interest rate risk management, and provided a detailed list of what they expect banks to do.
The advisory asks and answers a series of questions about managing interest rate risk. It moves beyond traditional balance sheet matching and gap reporting, instead focusing on modeling to understand the sensitivity of net interest income and the economic value of equity to changes the general level of interest rates. It also presents with unusual clarity what the OCC regards as best practices when it comes to using ALM models for interest rate risk management purposes.
For small community banks the advisory announced a subtle change from prior regulatory guidelines. In the past the regulators did not require institutions with simple balance sheets to run models. Now they are strongly encouraged to do so. The only exception is when the on-site examiner deems it unnecessary. Regardless of the size and complexity of your bank's balance sheet, operating without a model runs the risk of wrath from the regulators.
