How Will I Be Supervised?
Companies with consolidated assets of $1 billion or less are subject to a predominantly offsite "review" program. The review process is generally triggered by our receipt of the report of examination for the organization's lead bank.
- The FREQUENCY of review is generally determined by the size and condition of the organization's lead bank.
- The DEPTH of review is dictated by the company's complexity—a determination that is a function of the nature and scope of the nonbanking and/or financial activities and also involves other factors such as the level of consolidated risk management functions, the existence of significant public debt, and so on.
- Noncomplex companies receive less detailed reviews, while complex or weakened companies receive more detailed reviews that, in some cases, may include an onsite visit by examiners.
- RESULTS of the review are generally communicated to the company's board of directors through a brief letter format.
Companies with more than $1 billion in consolidated assets are subject to a risk-focused inspection program that generally includes examiners working onsite.
- The FREQUENCY of inspections depends on the size of the organization and the scope of any nonbanking or financial activities.
- Generally, companies in sound condition with consolidated assets between $1 billion and $5 billion are subject to inspection every 24 months.
- Companies with consolidated assets greater than $5 billion are subject to an inspection every 12 months.
- Companies found to be in a weakened condition are subject to closer supervision and will likely be inspected on a more frequent basis.
- RESULTS of the inspection are generally communicated to the company's board of directors through a formal report of inspection.
