Member Liquidity Stress Assessment


The Member Liquidity Stress Assessment (MLSA) provides FHLB Dallas member banks with a tool to estimate their bank's creditworthiness. FHLB Dallas member banks may click to use the MLSA model upon viewing the training and education materials and reading the disclaimer below.

Member banks can then estimate a potential change in total collateral capacity and collateral status based on a set of quantitative factors that are statistically proven to be the most predictive of bank failures. The model is built so members can change key factors to simulate a stress situation and see an estimate of how those factors could impact their collateral status in a stress scenario.
