The Dodd-Frank Act stress tests are a forward-looking assessment of capital sufficiency using standard capital plan assumptions across all firms. CCAR evaluates the capital planning practices and capital adequacy of the largest domestic and foreign bank holding companies, using the firms' planned capital actions such as dividend payments and share buybacks and issuances.
