  • Office Of The Comptroller Of The Currency Bulletin: Risk Management of Financial Derivatives: Quantitative Limits on Physical Commodity Transactions

    Date 04/08/2015

    Summary

    This bulletin clarifies the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency’s (OCC) expectations regarding the extent to which national banks and federal branches or agencies of a foreign bank (collectively, banks) may make or take delivery of a physical commodity to hedge commodity derivatives transactions.1 Specifically, the bulletin provides calculation guidance for determining whether physical hedging activities are a nominal portion of risk management activities. The OCC considers physical hedging positions to be nominal only when the bank’s commodity position is no more than 5 percent of the notional value of the bank’s derivatives that (1) are in that same particular commodity and (2) allow for physical settlement within 30 days. This bulletin supplements Banking Circular 277 (BC-277), “Risk Management of Financial Derivatives” (October 27, 1993).
