Financial Institutions Face FDIC, Fed Actions

Recent regulatory actions taken against banks and thrifts

March 29, 2010

By staff

Recent regulatory actions against U.S. financial institutions eased on a monthly basis but were still well above a year ago. Most of the latest activity was reported by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, though the Federal Reserve processed a few actions itself.

During February, the FDIC processed 64 matters, fewer than 67 the prior month, a news release Friday said. In February 2009, 45 orders were processed.

Among last month's FDIC orders were the following cease-and-desist orders. Failed financial institutions often face such orders prior to being seized by regulators.
