Dozens of Cease-and-Desist Orders Terminated

Recent regulatory actions against financial institutions

May 6, 2011

By staff

Out of more than 125 recent actions by bank and credit union regulators -- more than 20 percent were the termination of cease-and-desist orders.

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. reported that it processed 87 matters during March, an increase from 60 matters the previous month. But things weren't so bad when compared with the 104 actions reported for March 2010 and given that nearly a third of the latest actions were the termination of prior orders.

The FDIC and Office of the Comptroller of the Currency together issued 37 cease-and-desist or consent orders. Failed financial institutions often previously faced cease-and-desist or consent orders. The FDIC issues "consent" orders pursuant to Section 8(b), 12 U.S.C. §1818(b).
