First Niagara highlights stress-test results

First Niagara Financial Group said the results of its 2015 Dodd-Frank Act Stress Testing “validate the low risk nature of First Niagara’s balance sheet and support the company’s historic and current capital management strategies.”

As a bank with assets in the $10 billion to $50 billion range, First Niagara is required to perform annual company-run stress tests. The tests are designed to determine how well equipped banks are to withstand adverse economic conditions.
